Is a dignified death at home asking too much?
When British novelist Nell Dunn's partner wanted a peaceful death at home, it didn't turn out that way. Dunn’s play, Home Death, tackles the issue of dying at home in a series of interlinking voices. Her work is the focus of The Council on Palliative Care’s free public David Bourke Memorial Lecture on October 9. The Council presents readings from Dunn’s play "Home Death", previously on stage in London, UK. The readings will be followed by a panel discussion by experts in the field of palliative care.
