Description

Jay is 27. For one more day. And she reckons she's about to die. It's not all that rational, but whoever let that get in the way of a premature death fantasy? Written and performed by Ashleigh Laurence (Soho Writers' Lab 2018/19), Tumours is a witty, tender, and darkly funny portrayal of a young woman trapped by the fate of her genetic legacy. Part stand-up, part anecdotes, the show explores themes of femininity, stablefamily privilege, and the importance of role models (and what happens without them).

I laughed hard and I cried harder! Absolutely loved this show and would recommend to anyone. Ashleigh delivers this one-woman performance with power, guts and a lot of heart. I felt completely safe as an audience member, and will definitely make sure to see it again before I leave Edinburgh! Beautiful show!

Have you ever wondered what’d you’d eat for your final meal? Jay has, and it’s Wotsits and Wagon Wheels - the jammy ones, obviously. Because Jay is sure she’s going to die before she turns 28, like Kurt Cobain...
