Acclaimed Dallas actress Sherry Jo Ward takes a rare neurological disease she suffers with everyday to the stage in Stiff. Ward’s production about her daily dealings with body spasms, muscle stiffness and an inability to stand for more than about 20 seconds before pain sets in, among many other symptoms of stiff-person syndrome, are one part comedy and one part educational. A first-person account of what it means to suddenly have a life-changing ailment, Stiff earned recognition for Best Actress and Best New Play from the Dallas-Fort Worth Theatre Critics Forum, and its success at the Festival of Independent Theatres earlier this year brought three new dates this month to Stage West, 821 W. Vickery Blvd., Fort Worth. The first show starts at 7 p.m. Tuesday. Tickets start at $15 and can be purchased at stagewest.org.
