Play about breast cancer set for premiere at UK April 22
A woman dealing with her faith after being diagnosed with breast cancer is the subject of a new play that will premiere at the University of Kentucky this month.
“Nevertheless: A Story of Resolve” is a story of faith, hope and perseverance. “I want to engage the audience with a meaningful story that will impact their lives,” said playwright Lisa A. Brown, left. “Each of us has been affected by breast cancer. We either have a personal history with it or we know someone who has,” said Brown, who works in the UK School of Journalism and Telecommunications. “Breast cancer does not discriminate based on race, economic status, political affiation or even gender.”
The play will premiere April 22 and also be presented April 23, April 29 and May 1 at UK’s Memorial Hall. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 the day of the performance and are available online at www.ticketmaster.com, by phone at (859) 257-TICS or by visiting the UK Student Center Ticket Office, room 253.
The performances on April 22 and May 1 will include a question and answer session with the cast and playwright. The April 29 performance will include sign interpreters and special seating will be designated for the hearing impaired. To further raise awareness about breast cancer, a local representative of the Susan G. Komen Foundation will be at each performance to hand out information about the disease. (Read more)
