IndyFringe to present comedy about….breast cancer.

A trilogy of one-woman plays, which started with a devastating diagnosis, led Dr. Heather Carver to understand the power of humor in supporting health.

Diagnosed  with breast cancer at age 37, the mother of two young daughters, Dr. Carver turned to writing to help process the grief and fear that accompanies such terrible news. Her long journey through treatment, surgery, relapse and recovery provided the raw material for her plays. Donning the clown’s persona, Carver’s musings are thoughtful, funny and ironic as she relates the insights, situations and relationships cancer brought to her life.

Author of two books and several journal articles, Carver's research on women's health and performance started years before her diagnosis. Since then she has also written interactive plays, which have toured across the U.S., about women's experiences as breast cancer patients.  Carver is the head of the theater program at the Unversity of Missouri-Columbia.

The play, Booby Prize, written by Dr. Carver will be produced at Indy Fringe as part of DivaFest Friday, April 12 at 8 PM, Saturday, April 13 at 2:15, and Sunday, April 14 at 2:30 PM.
