“A senior theatre company, Act II Studio, is approached by a Canadian center about transforming their social science research into a play about breast cancer. What resulted was the phenomenon, “Handle With Care?” which had over 200 performances across Canada and in the U.S., and became the subject of a documentary film. “Standing Ovation” traces the project from the first meeting of the actors and researchers to the rigors of touring a hit. This is an essential book for those theatre groups interested in working on projects aimed at social change.” Includes book and video.
