It Only Hurts When I Laugh: “Pirates of the Chemotherapy” Earns a Hearty “Argh!”

A metaphor for the ways in which pirates and breast cancer survivors share both their missing “parts” and their strengths, “Pirates of the Chemotherapy” celebrates how both are challenged by life’s adversities and choose to fight, even when the only thing they have left is their will to survive. With six local women in the leads, this simple production launches itself into the hearts of the audience, most of whom can name a relative or friend who has taken on the breast cancer battle.
