Award-Winning One-Man Play THE ACTUAL DANCE Comes To The Writer's Center

Actor and playwright Sam Simon is bringing his one-man love story, The Actual Dance, to the stage at The Allan B. Lefcowitz Theater in Bethesda, Maryland on March 20, 2018.

The Actual Dance is an award-winning play in one act that has toured the nation for five years, moving audiences to laugh, cry and then cheer! It's a story of love's ultimate journey 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, 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, faith and love.

"This journey, this show, The Actual Dance, is the ultimate consummation of my and Susan's love over the last five decades," said Simon.

Mr. Simon has been performing and touring the country with The Actual Dance, since 2013. He presents this beautiful love story to private groups, public theaters as well as, Caregiver groups, medical schools, synagogues and churches and seminaries. The Actual Dance has been well-received across the country.

The Manhattan Digest called The Actual Dance "...a life-affirming ode to commitment and boundless love." And Stage Buddy called it "Pure theatre as it was initially meant to be."

An audience member, during a production in Indianapolis, said, "I saw your play Thursday evening and it has changed forever how I will relate to my wife. Thank You."
