Other Funny Stories About Cancer
Can “getting off” appear in the same tag line as cancer and youth mentoring? A sequel to his first cancer play BALL, Other Funny Stories About Cancer attempts to lampoon the idea of ‘getting over it’ by revisiting Brian’s original cancer story — this time including those details deemed inappropriate the first time around. Other Funny Stories About Cancer takes a comic look at queer identities, virginity, mortality, international co-existance and ‘happy endings’ for everyone. Directed by Margot Bordelon.

“Lobel has a commanding presence, and this raw, ambitious performance show an admirable eagerness to speak ugly, improper truths.” Critic’s Choice – Chicago Reader
