A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Gynecologic Oncology Unit at Memorial Sloan- Kettering Cancer Center in NYC
Oct 3 - 5 , 2019 • Knight Gallery at Spirit Square
How many jokes does it take to change an IV? A 20-something, aspiring comedian with questionable taste in jokes meets a middle-aged man with humor deficit disorder. The two are brought together unexpectedly when their mothers become roommates in Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Together, this unlikely duo must negotiate some of life’s biggest challenges…while making some of the world’s most inappropriate jokes. “Funny Thing… makes a convincing case that hard laughter is an absolutely appropriate response to those moments when life seems like too bad a joke not to respond otherwise.” — Ben Brantley, NYT. Directed by Marla Brown. Featuring Karina Caporino, Bill Reilly and Joanna Gerdy.
