The Timshel Theater group out of Montrose Colorado is going to be performing Tuesdays with Morrie at the Wright Opera House in Ouray on October 1st (Friday, 7:00 pm) and a Sunday matinee at 2pm October 3rd.
Based on the best-selling book Tuesdays With Morrie, newspaper columnist Mitch Albom recounts his time spent with his 78-year-old sociology professor, Morrie Schwartz, as Morrie was dying from Lou Gehrig's Disease (ALS).
Mitch shares what he learned from this wise and joyful man as Morrie's health failed. Their weekly visits in the twilight of Morrie's life became a master's course in the lessons of life for Mitch.
“Am I going to withdraw from the world, as so many people do, or am I going to live?" Morrie asked himself. "I decided I'm going to live, for as long as I have left."
The tale is a triumph of the human spirit that is humorous, inspiring and deeply moving, but never depressing.
