Audition (Calgary): The Goodbye Day by Andrea Halwas – Theatre Transit

Theatre Transit presents The Goodbye Day by Andrea Halwas.

Synopsis: “If you live your life right, you never have to say goodbye.” After being diagnosed with a terminal illness, William faces a series of experiences that allow him to explore not what his life would have been, but instead, what his death really means, both to his family, and to his understanding of mortality and human kindness.
