Recordings and Slides
Cancer Stories is a powerful stage production from the Wisconsin Story Project that honors the personal stories of people affected by cancer.
For more than a year, Wisconsin Story Project co-founders Talish Barrow and Mike Lawler interviewed cancer survivors, caregivers, and oncologists.
Cancer Stories brings these interviews to life, with the help of an experienced cast of actors. Each character on the stage represents a real person, and the stories they share are taken directly from the interviews, word for word.
The end result is profound, candid, and deeply human.
Hear the personal stories of 5 different individual's experiences with cancer. Each discusses how cancer has impacted their lives and what they have taken from their journeys. Their stories are real, powerful, and meaningful.
