It doesn’t matter that a now-bald Myers — with prickly black stubble where long thick brown hair used to be — only acts as if she is in pain taking on the role of terminally ill cancer patient Vivian Bearing in Shot in the Dark Production’s “Wit.” (The show opened on Friday, Nov. 8, at the Evelyn Larson Theatre.)
Watching Myers, a loved one, step into the role of a woman suffering, dying, brings back tragic memories for Hartshorn.
Both have watched loved ones suffer and die of cancer -- a feeling they said can’t be understood by those who haven’t experienced it first hand.
“I remember watching my dad disconnect,” Myers said.
SHOW TIMES TIME: 8 p.m.
DATES: Nov. 8, 9, 15, 16, 22 & 24*
PLACE: Evelyn Larson Theater
