Playwright Sandra de Helen +Worship In Pink Breast Cancer Awareness
On Tuesday Oct. 25th at 11am on KBOO 90.7FM Dmae Roberts visits with playwright Sandra de Helen who’s receiving a reading of her play in NYC. We’ll also spotlight a community celebration of breast cancer survivors at the Worship In Pink event in the Legacy Emanuel Medical Center Atrium.

Portland writer Sandra de Helen's play Blue Roses is being featured in a reading at the Dramatists Guild of America Friday Night Footlights program in October. Blue Roses tells the story of an imagined meeting of Tennessee William's sister and Rosemary Kennedy at a mental instititution in Missouri. Blue Roses was previously presented in the PlayLab at the Great Plains Theatre Conference and in a Portland reading directed by Matt Zrebski.

In the second half of the show, Dmae talks with Kathy Kendrix, organizer of Worship in Pink, a community celebration that takes place on Sunday, October 30, 2- 6 p.m. in the Legacy Emanuel Medical Center Atrium.

The event honors breast cancer survivors with exhibitors, booths, speakers, a reading of The Breast Cancer Monologues by Dmae Roberts and a special performance by Sisters in Survival, a chorus of breast cancer survivors led by Julianne R. Johnson. For more information about Worship in Pink see the website.
