Pirates of Chemotherapy by Paul Schutte and directed by Toni Cacioppo, will run February 14-17 at the KAD Studio Theatre, 7th floor, Kad Suan Kaew Shopping Complex. This dramatic comedy gives us an intimate look at six women who share a diagnosis of breast cancer, all of whom are in various stages of treatment, recovery, and remission. They bond and band together in touching and often hilarious support of one another, pledging to live life to the fullest! Pirates reminds us of how the relentless spirit of the human condition responds to love and considers the idea that healing is different than cure. The Richmond Gay Times review said, “…we laugh, we cry, we empathize with those we know who have battled cancer. This cast of six isn’t just actors—pirates, to be correct—but representatives of diverse people who convince us that the curative powers of laughter and fortitude shouldn’t be discounted.”
A portion of ticket sales for Pirates of Chemotherapy will go to benefit breast cancer outreach throughout Northern Thailand.
