No Cure For Cancer

Recommended by

    David Hansen has written a piece that seems, at first glance, to be a conversation between grief and cold logic, but then the woman’s personal story about her own loss and of the doctor’s dismissive approach to her son gives dramatic, emotional clarity to the discussion at the beginning about specimens in jars. This short but dramatically powerful play builds to a pitch-perfect ending.

    Talk about inhumanity to man. Both of these characters seem far out on their own feelings, which undoubtedly have much to do with their beliefs. I would choose the realist. This covers ground that evokes much thought.

    The script does so much in so little time. It is eventful, electric and its conversation feels more like overheard reality than written drama. And what you hear literally makes you want to hide.
