Getting to Room Temperature – a hard hitting, funny one man show, about death and dying

October 14, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

$20 – $25

At 93-and-a-half, my healthy and active mother took a turn for the worse. I accompanied her to the doctor.

Doctor: What can I do for you, Rose?
Rose: I would like to die, Doctor. Can you help me?
Doctor: No, and don’t ask me again.

Rose’s decline and polite quest for euthanasia take us on an emotional journey into grudgingly explored territory.
Getting to Room Temperature is a hard-hitting, sentimental and funny one-person play about dying. Based on a mostly true story.

Written and directed by Arthur Milner
Performed by Robert Bockstael
Lighting, sound and set design by Martin ConboyAfter the performance there will be a panel discussion.
Tickets – $20-25
