This Pulitzer-prize-winning play, later a movie starring Emma Thompson, features an uncompromising, detached English professor who must learn compassion through the ordeal of her own, ultimately unsuccessful, cancer treatment. As she is also the narrator of the play, this character (Barbara Rhodenhizer) never leaves the stage and has 80% of the lines. The final performance was followed by a panel discussion organized by the Cancer Society.
