    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

    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.
