Father's Death

Alison Lawrence wrote a play, because her father's death and time in hospital showed her how tricky it can be to talk about and plan for a loved one's death. Matt Galloway spoke with Alison, and The Reverend Nola Crewe. She is the Chaplain at Mount Sinai Hospital. The play "Piece by Piece" External Site opens tonight at Factory Theatre as part of the Next Stage Theatre Festival. Following tonight's performance, she and Alison will both take part in a conversation about loss and grief.
