Dispatches from the Other Kingdom


An original story theater piece performed by members of East Tennessee State University's Storytelling Program, " Dispatches from the Other Kingdom: The Cancer Journey," explores the dramatic and healing potential of storytelling in medicine. Dr. Joseph Sobol, program coordinator of the ETSU Storytelling Program, worked with students in the storytelling program to conceive "Dispatches from the Other Kingdom," which is based on interviews with cancer patients that were collected during a collaborative, groundbreaking research study at ETSU. The performance demonstrates the power of "illness narratives" in speaking to our common humanity.
