The Climb Against Cancer is an annual event held in September at Cranmore Mountain Resort.

Many people participate to celebrate survivorship; others come to commemorate the lives of those who lost the battle with cancer. And still others hike to raise money for their friends and neighbors who are being helped by Jen’s Friends. People of all ages participate, and many bring their four-legged family members.

The hike up and down the slopes of Cranmore Mountain is approximately three miles. Participants may choose to hike the entire or partial route.

Those who hike to the top of the mountain will be rewarded with picturesque views of Mt. Washington, the Presidential Range, Mt. Chocorua and the Moat Mountain range. They will also be entertained with live performances by local singers and dancers. Snacks and water are also provided.

After the hike, participants are treated to lunch and more live entertainment. Awards and prizes are also given out to the teams and individuals who raised the most money.

Thank you to everyone who helped make the 2018 Climb Against Cancer a huge success!

'Night Mother

M&D at Eastern Slope Inn Playhouse
2760 White Mountain Highway
North Conway, NH 03860


Performances 7:30pm Thursday, Friday and Saturday; 3:30pm Sunday
‘Night Mother by Marsha Norman
Directed by Melissa O’Neil
The scene is the living room/kitchen of a small house on an isolated country road, which is shared by Jessie and her mother. Jessie’s father is dead; her loveless marriage ended in divorce; her absent son is a petty thief and ne’er-do-well; her last job didn’t work out and, in general, her life is stale and unprofitable. As the play begins Jessie asks for her father’s service revolver and calmly announces that she intends to kill herself. At first, her mother refuses to take her seriously, but as Jessie sets about tidying the house and making lists of things to be looked after, her sense of desperate helplessness begins to build. In the end, with the inexorability of genuine tragedy, she can only stand by, stunned and unbelieving, as Jessie quietly closes and locks her bedroom door and ends her profound unhappiness in one fatal, stunning and deeply disturbing moment—a moment never to be forgotten by those who have witnessed, and come to understand, her plight.
