One Act, 90-Minute Musical Nominated for four 2009 Drama Desk Awards including Outstanding Musical, The Story of My Life tells the story of two childhood friends and how their friendship profoundly defined their lives. Thomas Weaver is a best-selling, award-winning author. Alvin Kelby was his best friend for thirty years. But time can test the bonds of friendship, and when it does, Thomas calls on the only resource he has - his stories of Alvin - to learn where things went wrong. The Story of My Life is a soaring tribute to the power of friendship and the people who change our lives forever.
