Drama Play Script: 'Another Life' by Derek Webb


Mary has cancer and knows she only has a limited time to live.  For her, travelling to Switzerland to end her life with dignity is the only way. Her husband and friends are as supportive as they can be, but Mary is pragmatic and realistic about her decision. With touches of wry humour, the play ultimately is a celebration of a life.
