Theater troupe tackles cancer

“We all know somebody who has cancer,” said Carolyn Azure, a member of the Young At Heart Readers Theater Troupe. “The more open we can be about it, the more healing we can be.”

To that end, the group will present “Perspective: Personal Reflections on Cancer” on Saturday, Nov. 9, at 2:30 p.m.

A collection of thought-provoking poems and stories, the play is based on an idea by Forest Grove author Susan Springer Munger, who is a cancer survivor. She and other survivors perform the play, along with members of the troupe. Jeanine Stassens directs, assisted by Dan Kelsey.

The play will be presented only once, at St. Bede’s Episcopal Church, 1609 Elm St., Forest Grove. Admission is by donation to the American Cancer Society.
