WHEN THEY GO AND YOU DO NOT: A Blog and Plays about DYING And COMING BACK TO LIFE

by Susan Merson chronicles Susan Merson's journey through the untimely death of her husband, Tony Shultz, artist, business man, friend and father. When a surprise diagnosis of mesothelioma is delivered, Shultz asks his wife of 27 years to keep family and friends updated. INCH BY INCH: the journey of the prince is born. The blog movingly documents the journey of discovery and fierce loving in the surprisingly short time between diagnosis and the end of their life together. Playwright and actress Merson continues documenting the healing process through her plays RECOGNITION and CARLA TELLS US WHAT HAPPENS as experience turns to memory. WHEN THEY GO AND YOU DO NOT, her most recent solo play, completes the first cycle of healing for the wife turned widow. And opens the door to what's next.

Editorial Reviews

"Merson's writing catapults us into the early sixties with such a sense of authenticity, beauty, and grace. A natural storyteller with an actor's ear for voice and character, Merson's prose hits the reader in the center of the heart and leaves them with the feeling of having traveled a great distance to find themselves in their very own backyard."
-Jamie Cat Callan, Author, French Women Don't Sleep Alone

"Susan Merson locates the reader squarely inside her characters hearts and minds,... her narrative voice is beautiful, luxurious, poetic. Merson creates a completely realized universe; she brings her readers effortlessly inside the tapestery of human condition as she considers it."
-Barbara Bottner, Award Winning Novelist and Screenwriter
