February 20-March 30, 2014

Collaboraction Artistic Director, Anthony Moseley, uses his personal experience with his father's battle with cancer as a theatrical lens for a meaning of life dramedy that takes a seriously funny look at cancer, the way we live, and the value of life. This is Not a Cure for Cancer, co-written and featuring Moseley playing himself, promises to attack cancer, its treatment, and the way we live with the same provocative, docudrama style as Moseley's Crime Scene: A Chicago Anthology.

February 20-March 30, 2014.
Press opening is Thursday, February 27 at 7 p.m.
Tickets range from $10 - $30.
