    Every milestone in life has a story. But there is one milestone story we seldom tell—the story of our experience of being present for the death of a loved one. Stay With Me Awhile is a compilation of vigil stories from across cultures, religions, political views and socio-economic circumstances that were collected over a seven-year period. Each story was entirely unique, and many of the scenes described were snapshots of lifelong relationships played out as the end of life approached. Learn More

  5. The Man She Was

    The Man She Was

    By Ric Averill.

    Product Code: MQ4000

    • Drama
    • Young Audiences | Middle School | High School | College and Adult | Family (all ages) | Senior Adults
    • 6 to 24m., 4 to 18w., 1 to 20 either gender.
    • 80 min.
    This gender-bending historical drama is based on Emma Edmond's memoir when she enlists as Frank Thompson and serves as a male nurse, spy and soldier during the Civil War. A "don't ask, don't tell" moment speaks clearly to the complexities of today's gender-fluid culture and the final life and death actions of the play give the story a Shakespearean feel, as she faces and accepts her own gender identity.
