A Pacifist’s Guide to the War on Cancer
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 collaborates with Complicite to look behind the poster campaigns and pink ribbons at the reality of cancer.
Contains adult themes and strong language
