My 2nd Act is a professionally produced stage show staged in theaters across the country and brought to you by the Women Survivors Alliance, a national organization that supports women as they navigate the journey of life after cancer. The shows feature a cast of real women on stage revealing their own personal experiences of surviving the disease. Their dramatic essays unravel the truth about perseverance in the face of uncertainty as they enter their 2nd Act of life–survivorship. The result is a raw and honest exposé that not only empowers those on stage, but also inspires those witnessing. It’s an amazing evening of emotions as it celebrates both the survivors and non-survivors in the audience. In turn, the members of the audience are motivated to create their own 2nd Acts, inspiring others, regardless of the challenges they face in life. And long after the stage lights have gone dark this inspiration and joy has a lasting effect.
