The Shadow Box
By Michael Cristofer
Directed by H. Gene Biby
The play, which earned Cristofer both a Pulitzer Prize and a Tony Award in 1977, centers on the lives of three dramatically different terminally ill patients on a hospital campus during the course of a day. The patients and their families show insight, perceptiveness and humor in dealing with the emotions and experiences that come during this last stage of life.
“Although it is about death and dying,” says Biby of the play, “the real message is that we should value and cherish each moment of our lives because we don't know what is coming next.”
