A Thousand Winds: Survival Stories

The Verge Theater is presenting "A Thousand Winds: Survival Stories​," a new play written by the ever-engaging Greg Owens, in conjunction with Cancer Support Community Montana.

With additional material by Maureen Kozicki, Donna Garber, Ray Curtis, Jeannie Gracey, Steve Johnson and Bill McLaughlin, "A Thousand Winds​" explores the stories of cancer survivors and loved ones lost to cancer.

With a mission statement that reads “To ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community,” Cancer Support Community is a national nonprofit organization with 41 chapters, and is represented in Bozeman in a thoughtful and welcoming environment at 102 S. 11th Ave.

Their collaboration with accomplished playwright, teacher and mentor Greg Owens is a gift that the Verge are so excited to support. Greg Owens has written and produced original plays with cutting-edge theatre companies around the United States and in London. 

With grace and poignancy, Bozeman’s own Stephanie Campbell directs Greg Owens’ script, which incorporates true stories from participants in a writing workshop, like the one depicted in the play, as they gather to share stories of loss and hope with humor and spirit, in this world premiere play commissioned by Cancer Support Community.

"A Thousand Winds: Survival Stories"​ runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. from March 23 to April 1. Tickets are $14 in advance and can be purchased online at vergetheater.com, or in person at Cactus Records. Or they are $16 at the door.
