Ever think that the people who perform autopsies have an unrelentingly morbid job? You might reconsider after attending Theater Wit's The Autopsy Talks, Dr. Ben Margolis' insightful look at the intricacies of death and the human body. His interactive discussion and slideshow details how an autopsy is performed, but it's his specialized knowledge of mortality and human anatomy that gives this discussion a fascinating dynamic. More than just a standard medical procedure, an autopsy often reveals surprising and even emotional hidden details about the deceased person's life while also providing a moving and cathartic experience for their family and loved ones, resulting in peace and closure. The Autopsy Talks is a rare glimpse at the ways in which this final medical procedure reveals a person's story. Take note, however, that the graphic nature of the experience makes this event best suited for those ages 18 and older.
Please note that the materials in The Autopsy Talks are presented sensitively and with discretion. Views are mostly of the inside of the body, with no views of the face or hands. Most guests who come feeling anxious about the content leave feeling curious to see more.
