Bates tells cancer story

Written by 

Grace Church in the Mountains will present Barbara Bates Smith in “The C Word: Her Own Cancer Story,” at 3 p.m. on Sept. 24.

“The C Word” is the frank, humorous and poignant story of her own diagnosis while playing the role of the cancer patient in Margaret Edson's Pulitzer-Prize winning drama “Wit.” Edson, who encouraged and helped Smith develop “The C Word,” will also attend the production.

A Southeastern Theatre “Best Actress” award winner, Barbara has recently played featured roles in regional productions of “Wit,” “Hamlet,” and “Doubt.”

The 45-minute presentation will be followed by an informal question-and-answer session with the performer and Margaret Edson. Hammer dulcimer accompaniment is provided by Jeff Sebens. Admission is free and open to the public.
