This show calls itself "an all-singing, all-dancing celebration of ordinary life and death," but there's nothing ordinary about it: it's an extraordinary, sometimes weird but wonderful portrait of cancer, and its diagnosis and treatment, in all its terror and everyday mundanity, too.
A Pacifist's Guide to the War on Cancer, The Dorfman - National Theatre
An all-singing, all-dancing examination of life with a cancer diagnosis. This brand new musical confronts the highs and lows of the scariest word we know.
Expect big anthems, shiny costumes, blood, tears and real cancer patients in this rip-roaring, heartbreaking celebration of ordinary life and death.
Bryony Kimmings creates fearless theatre to provoke social change. Her collaboration with Complicite looks behind the poster campaigns and pink ribbons at the reality of cancer: waiting rooms and chemo suites, changed bodies, family pressures and financial worries.
