Abstract

This article contains the script for a theatrical performance, including an explanatory introduction and commentary. This one-person performance is based on scholarly research and personal narrative. It explores the history of cancer research and treatment as well as selected individual experiences of cancer. Cancer stories told by contemporary patients, caregivers, and family members as well as historical figures, such as Fannie Burney, are represented. This performance argues that the concept of collateral history is important for studying stories of cancer experiences that arise from multiple interrelated perspectives.
