A Stewartry woman is taking the fight against cancer to the stage.
Thirty-six-year-old Helen Fox, who is an actress and playwright for her theatre company Fox and Hound, lost her father to the disease early this year and has written a play about the effects of cancer from both the victim and the family’s perspective.
Called 1in2 Chance, the drama is centred around four main characters and finds life repeating itself for a father and husband who lost his wife to the Big C.
The play will be premiered on Skye this weekend before coming to Moffat’s Old Well Theatre on Friday, 14 July, at 7.30pm, along with a double-bill of Tennessee Williams’ powerful shorts, Ivan’s Widow and Talk to Me Like the Rain and Let Me Listen.
The Skye performance is the first date of the company’s 2017 tour which takes in Nairn, Moffat, Oban, Linlithgow, The Edinburgh Fringe, Dalbeattie and New Galloway.
