Nell Dunn’s powerful play based on real-life experiences of cancer patients and those close to them.  By talking to those involved and through the act of writing this play, she says ’I began to fathom out what it is people can do for one another.’  Three separate stories unfold through the play, authentic voices of people learning ‘how to be’ with someone with a life-threatening illness.
