Wesley Fruge Directs Grief Dialogues Debut

Wesley Fruge

Wesley Fruge  has been Creative Advisor for The Grief Dialogues from the start.  He is also the Founder + Producing Artistic Director of Forward Flux Productions.  We are incredibly lucky he is directing our Seattle Death Salon play Grief Dialogues.

In his own words

“I am very passionate about “The Grief Dialogues” because I think it’s a dialogue we NEED to have as a country. Watching a personal family member slowly fade has made me re-think death and dying. I’m excited to be a part of a project that will bring this important conversation to the stage.”
