Tuesdays with Morrie
Based on Mitch Albom’s best-selling memoir, Tuesdays with Morrie is a play so touching, powerful and celebratory it may change your outlook on life.
Sixteen years after graduation, career-obsessed journalist Mitch reunites with his former college professor and mentor Morrie, who is battling Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS). What starts as a simple visit turns into a life-changing weekly pilgrimage – always on Tuesdays – that enables Morrie to teach his final and most important lesson – how to live.
This exploration of friendship, life and death will make you cry, think, feel…but above all it will make you laugh.
The role of Morrie will be performed by Remesh Panicker (Art, Romeo & Juliet, Merchant of Venice) while Benjamin Chow (Romeo & Juliet, The LKY Musical) will perform the role of Mitch. Directed by Samantha Scott-Blackhall.
“Unforgettable! No matter how well you tell the story, the play makes it more vivid, more shattering, more humorous.”

“A touching, life-affirming, deeply emotional drama with a generous dose of humor.”
