Last December, renowned actress Rosie Murray suffered a serious heart attack requiring surgery. She returned to the stage in full-form, on Saturday night in her first production Slice of Life, staged at Hope United church hall.

Described as a theatrical presentation of reality, and the actress' own personal experiences, Slice of Life is directed by Owen 'Blakka' Ellis, the production will mark her return as a benefit show

"I'm so excited to be getting back on the horse. Been out of commission since last year, and this is my first performance in terms of acting since I've gone through my recovery," Murray is quoted as saying.

Two years ago, Murray opted out of continuing her career in media, choosing instead the life of a baker. Consumed with taking her business to profit while focusing on penning her own works, Rosie's medical issues went unnoticed. After suffering a heart attack in December, her family set up a GoFundMe account to the tune of US$20,000 (approximately J$1.4 million) to finance a necessary angioplasty.

"I'm really excited, titillated! And I did a little adaptation to it, to address the recent journey and the recovery phase. It's still the original Slice of Life with just a little extra slice. God has been so good, so it's going to be a celebration as well," Murray said.

Murray was previously active on the theatre scene, appearing in local and international plays such as Saving Grace, and an Actor Boy-nominated performance in Tek Yuh Hand Offa Me.
