EUROPEAN PREMIERE

A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE GYNECOLOGIC

ONCOLOGY UNIT 

AT MEMORIAL SLOAN-KETTERING CANCER CENTER OF NEW YORK CITY

ABOUT

Karla, a foul-mouthed twenty-something comedian, and Don, a middle-aged man embroiled in a nasty divorce, are brought together unexpectedly when their cancer stricken mothers become roommates in the hospital. 

 

Together, this unlikely duo must negotiate some of life’s biggest challenges… while making some of the world’s most inappropriate jokes. 

 

Can these two very lost people learn to laugh through their pain and lean on each other, when all they really want to do is run away?

 

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Gynecologic Oncology Unit... received its critically acclaimed world 

premiere Off-Broadway in 2016 at the MCC Theater at Lucille Lortel Theatre before its West Coast premiere at the Geffen Playhouse.
