Live Storytelling Event to Benefit Hospice of the Fisher Home

TURNERS FALLS — “Healing Waters,” a benefit for Hospice of the Fisher Home, is a curated selection of original stories told live from the stage by people from Western Mass. The event takes place Sunday, Nov. 5 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Shea Theater in Turners Falls.

This unusual matinee offers the audience time to pause and hold space for grief and the wonder of life. Leaping past the boundaries of typical entertainment, this show is described as a journey through a landscape of loss, mourning, solace, and hope.

Storytellers include Janet Alfs, Julie Bermant, Sarah Bliss, Lauren Crigler, Ali de Groot, Dianne Engel-Dragon, Joanne Graves, Kate Mason, Beth Riungu, Dina Stander, Christine Stevens, Paul Wanta, and Shirley Whitaker.

“Healing Waters” is a collaboration between the Northeast Death Care Collaborative and Hospice of the Fisher Home, an independent, nonprofit hospice organization in Amherst, providing a hospice residence and in-home, end-of-life care in Franklin, Hampden, and Hampshire counties.
