Jewish playwright takes on wife’s cancer diagnosis

Sam Simon, a Jewish playwright and actor, will perform his play that portrays how his Jewish faith helped him support his wife during breast cancer, at the upcoming Tampa International Fringe Festival.

The award-winning play, The Actual Dance, is an off-Broadway love story that opens a rare window into the mind and soul of a husband and caregiver after receiving the news that his wife has cancer.

The Actual Dance transforms the stage alternatively into an otherworldly place called The Ballroom with an orchestra that in the show includes a cellist and classical guitarist; hospital rooms and doctors offices; flashbacks to first dates; and into the here-and-now.

Simon will perform the play at the Hillsborough Community College Studio Theater, 2112 W. 15 St., Tampa. Performances times are Thursday, May 11, 8:35 p.m.; Saturday, May 13, 3:20 p.m.; and Sunday, May 14 at 1:20 p.m. General admission tickets are $12.
