A LIGHT PLAY ABOUT A HEAVY SUBJECT

Let’s talk about cancer…that’s a bit heavy!

International award-winning theatre company Complicité have dared to be different by creating an uplifting play with songs about this scary topic.

A Pacifist’s Guide to the War on Cancer is a funny, moving show about newfound friendships, pain and death, mundane treatment cycles, hairlessness and scars…with songs and dancing.

Led by Bryony Kimmings, this production will blow everything you think you know about cancer out of the water.
