A Pacifist's Guide to the War on Cancer
Fri 26 Jan to Sat 3 Feb 2018
£30 - £10
Bryony Kimmings wants to talk about cancer but she's not getting very far.
Instead, she keeps hearing about battles, survivors, fun runs and new leases of life. What's everyone so scared of?
Kimmings is famous for her unique take on taboo topics - from her sexual health (Sex Idiot), to her boyfriend’s depression (Fake It ’Til You Make It), to her search for positive role models for her teenage niece (Credible, Likeable, Superstar, Role Model).
Her highly acclaimed collaboration with Complicité blows everything you think you know about cancer out of the water. This funny and moving show looks behind the poster campaigns and pink ribbons at the reality of cancer... with songs.
Get ready for a new way to talk and think about illness.
“A vital confrontation, extraordinary”
