Direct from its tour of the UK, the Seymour Centre will present the Sydney premiere of A Pacifist’s Guide to the War on Cancer from the award-winning theatre company, Complicité. A funny, uplifting and moving play about a very scary topic, this production will blow everything you think you know about cancer out of the water! With songs, and dancing!

Written by Bryony Kimmings (Fake It Til You Make It, Credible Likeable Superstar Rolemodel, 7 Day Drunk and Sex Idiot) and Brian Lobel with Kirsty Housley, A Pacifist’s Guide to the War on Cancer will look behind the poster campaigns and pink ribbons at the reality of cancer: newfound friendships, pain and death, mundane treatment cycles, hairlessness and scars...

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. Expect big anthems, shiny costumes, blood, tears and real cancer patients in this rip-roaring, heartbreaking celebration of ordinary life and death, scratching at the battle metaphors that surround cancer to reveal what really lies beneath.
