Cedarville, Ohio—The theatre program at Cedarville University invites you to pause and reflect on life, death and the small things that make life beautiful.
“Tuesdays With Morrie,” by Mitch Albom and Jeffrey Hatcher, tells the story of Mitch’s friendship with his former college professor Morrie Schwartz. After learning that Morrie has Lou Gehrig’s disease, Mitch reconnects with him and begins visiting him weekly. These visits teach Mitch more about the meaning of life and how to live life to the fullest.
“Love is the only rational act,” Morrie tells him. “Without love, we are birds with broken wings.” After Morrie dies, Mitch realizes his old friend was right…death isn’t nearly as bad if we live our lives full of love.
Derek Stockwell, a junior, plays the part of Mitch. “The wonderful thing about this play,” says Stockwell, “is that it shows the sadness of death, but it also shows the wonders of life.” Stephen Eslick, a junior, will play Morrie.
