Actress finds intersection of art, life and cancer in one-woman show

Written by 

Local actress Barbara Bates Smith will bring her one-woman show “The C-Word: A Life-Meets-Art Cancer Story” to St. David’s Episcopal church at 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 19 .

“The C-Word: A Life-Meets-Art Cancer Story” is a frank, humorous and poignant story of her role in the Pulitzer-Prize-winning play “Wit,” the story of her own breast cancer and her close relationship to a Hospice cancer patient.

Jeff Sebens, a musician and instrument craftsman, will provide hammered dulcimer musical accompaniment.

Barbara and her husband, Russell, live near Clyde, and in addition to touring Smith plays several instruments.

The performance is free. Donations for the new Jackson County Public Library Complex will be accepted at the door.

    That was the question constantly asked to me when friends and curious folks alike found out I was interviewing Kevin Costner. Yes, that Kevin Costner. You see the Academy Award-winning actor/director fronts a country/blues band called Modern West. They’ll be performing at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts in Franklin on April 24.
