TRURO - A live performance early next month will showcase one woman's everyday experiences when diagnosed with leukemia.
‘five minutes to curtain' was written by Ann Foster and Samantha Madore, and will be used as a fundraiser for BellaSante's Relay for Life team, BellaBabes.
The story features Jane, a young woman who focuses not on the illness and the hospital visits, but her everyday experiences with the disease as the backdrop and her life as the spotlight.
Madore and Josée Bourgeois star in the film, which Leana Todd is directing.
‘five minutes to curtain' begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Marigold Cultural Centre on June 5.
The performance has an entire soundtrack of music from the 1980s, including hits like Corey Hart's ‘Never Surrender' and ‘Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go' by Wham!
Tickets are $15, with $3 from each ticket going to support the Relay for Life. They can be purchased at the Marigold Cultural Centre's box office or online at marigoldcentre.ca.
