Karen Hobbs : Tumour Has It

Tumour Has It is an honest and hilarious story of a young woman’s cervical cancer extravaganza. Join Karen as she takes you on a journey through the last year and a half of her life. She will describe the benefits of having cancer, and recount the funny, sad, brilliant and incredibly awkward things that have happened so far. Through theatre, comedy, storytelling, a bit of music and a poem to Svetlana, you will spend 50 minutes with someone who has found a light at the end of her vaginal tunnel, and is turning this scary episode of her life into a brilliant one.

Cancer and vaginas are two things that are uncomfortable to talk about. So let’s talk about them, laugh about them and raise awareness about them.

Rumour has it that cancer is barking up the wrong chuff.

Elaine Malcolmson : Arrangements

Elaine Malcolmson brings her acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe show to the Women in Comedy Festival. Her festival debut is a dark, uplifting, twisty tale about the importance of making your own Arrangements.

Decisions, self-reproach, jokes and death – when Julie has to face up to the responsibilities of adulthood, she makes some bad decisions that lead to her darkest days and ultimately, the biggest mistake of her life. Full of twists and turns, highs and lows, Arrangements is a heartening story, deftly told by Northern Irish native and hopeful cynic Elaine Malcolmson.  Contains flowers, but suitable for hay fever sufferers.
