entry arrow6:55 AM | Repertory Philippines Presents Tuesdays with Morrie This Weekend in Dumaguete



Tuesdays with Morrie, opening September 13, is a heart-warming play that combines comedy, drama, and poignancy, and makes the blend perfectly. Written for the stage by Mitch Albom and Jeffrey Hatcher, and based on Albom’s best selling book, Tuesdays With Morrie is a feast for the mind and the heart. The play tells the story of a man named Mitch (Bart Guingona) who meets a teacher named Morrie (Miguel Faustman) when he signs up for one of his classes at Brandeis University. Throughout his college career Mitch and Morrie are close. When it comes time for Mitch to leave, he promises Morrie he will keep in touch. He doesn’t. It is sixteen years before Mitch and Morrie meet again. By this time Mitch is a successful sports writer and Morrie is dying of Lou Gehrig’s disease. Once they renew their friendship Mitch’s visits to Morrie become a regular thing. He flies from Detroit to Boston every week and has Tuesdays with Morrie. And during these visits he begins to learn some of the secrets of life—and death. There are only two characters on stage for the entire act of the play, but they create a world all their own and allow the audience to enter it.
