A Pacifist’s Guide to the War on Cancer

  • Show Information

Book by Bryony Kimmings & Brian Lobel.
Music by Tom Parkinson. Lyrics by Bryony Kimmings.

Directed by Bryony Kimmings.

A whistle stop tour through life with a cancer diagnosis, with songs.

In six unconventional stories we get a glimpse behind the poster campaigns, provocative news stories and political posturing. Expect unexpected anthems, questions on mortality, shit loads of wigs, sequins and probably bucket loads of tears in this examination of the scariest word we know.

Commissioned and produced by Complicite.

“Artfully crafted, tightrope walkingly fragile and really rather beautiful.”

Praise for Complicite:
