Best-selling author Thomas finds himself at a loss for words when faced with the task of eulogizing his lifelong friend, Alvin, after his mysterious death. As Thomas struggles to compose his thoughts, he is drawn into the library of his mind by the embodied memory of his friend. Through music and song, these two friends recount their humorous adventures, quibble about their past, and ultimately discover what is at the base of every strong friendship. Nominated for four Drama Desk Awards, The Story of My Life weaves songs and stories together to explore the unseen ripples we make in each other’s lives.
