Author Leo Tolstoy once said “Man cannot possess anything as long as he fears death. But to him who does not fear it, everything belongs.”

Veteran Atlanta actor Tim McDonough took these words to heart. After retiring as artistic director from Theater Emory, he decided to write a monologue about his mortality.

Tim’s one-man show, “A Bunch of Different Ways I’d Like To Die” opens tonight at Synchronicity Theater.

Ahead of his performance, Lois Reitzes talked with him about the inspiration behind his introspective play.
