THE ACTUAL DANCE
Live Theater Performance by Samuel A. Simon
Sunday, November 1 at 5pm
$10 Members | $15 Public -
Discussion will follow performance

An award-winning play, The Actual Dance is one of the most beautiful love stories ever told. A graceful and inspiring journey through the uncharted waters of illness, where the resilience and power of the human heart ultimately persevered. Of special interest to all cancer patients, survivors, family members, friends, caregivers, support groups and mental health care providers.

When first noticing his wife at the age of sixteen, Sam could not predict the profound connection they would share—they are two halves of the same whole. In their 33rd year of marriage, that love was tested…and the ringing in Sam’s ear was not as one would expect, in fact it was an orchestra, playing the music of his life--The Actual Dance. (60 minutes)
