Strange Bedfellow               quick summary

Just some Falls Church people: From the American Association of University Women to the Boy Scouts, from the Lions to some neighborhood associations, from the Village Preservation and Improvement Society to veterans groups, from the Democrats to the Republicans, the League of Women Voters, local restaurants and local businesses ....


Fundraising for cancer treatment. Specifically, every penny raised through contributions and ticket sales goes to Life with Cancer, which is affiliated with INOVA and works with cancer patients and their families right here in Northern Virginia.


A play, The Actual Dance, about what happens in one family when the wife and mother is diagnosed with cancer. Believe it or not, this is not a tragedy. It is a gentle love story with a happy ending. It illustrates the roller-coaster, emotional ride that a family takes with modern cancer treatment.

What people said in February:

"This was more than a fund raising project.
This was a community service.
Thanks ... for presenting this."

"We were almost overwhelmed with the insight and self-discovery. What a powerful,
important message."

"Wow! Sam Simon is quite an actor
and Susan Simon is my hero."

"I feel better prepared. There could not be a better way to help people understand."

"Amazing what Sam Simon did with a blank stage and a stool. Well written, well acted. It was as if anything more would have detracted
from the experience."

"You packed so much in a short time. So tightly written. Not a wasted word."

"I learned so much about what my mother and father and all of us will experience."

"Please do this again. I will help."
