The Rochester Civic Theatre Company is proud to present Stay With Me Awhile by Mary E Johnson and Barbara Means Fraser. Stay With Me Awhile is a brand new work and will have its world premiere here in the studio theatre at The Civic, Feb 2018.
Stay With Me Awhile is a docu-drama or readers theatre where the actors are story-tellers. The stories they tell are adapted from almost 100 interviews with people who have kept a vigil with a friend or loved one near the end of life.
In our society we are used to telling the stories of the birth of a baby or the story of our wedding. But we seem to have no easy place in which to share the powerful stories that happen as death approaches. Stay With Me Awhile immerses the audience in the world of the vigil and is designed to present common, human experiences with which many will identify.
If you have ever kept a vigil with someone you love you will want to see this play.
Some of the performances of Stay With Me Awhile will be followed by a discussion.
