The Actual Dance is an award-winning, autobiographical play that has moved audiences to laugh, cry and then cheer for six years. Written and performed by Samuel A. Simon, The Actual Dance is told through the eyes and heart of a husband as he struggles with his worst fears in what everyone expects to be his wife’s losing battle to breast cancer. In the hour-long performance, and with original music, the story takes the audience on an emotional but uplifting journey that rewards them with an unexpected happy ending, and a universal, life-affirming lesson of hope and faith.
