Lifeline Theatre and Live Bait Theater present the 15th Annual Fillet of Solo Festival
I Got Sick Then I Got Better
Written and performed by Jenny Allen
Directed by James Lapine & Darren Katz
“I Got Sick Then I Got Better” is a comic riff on one woman’s adventures after falling down the medical rabbit hole. Diagnosed with and treated for ovarian cancer in 2005, writer and performer Jenny Allen (“The New Yorker,” “The New York Times”) tells her story of the harrowing tailspin she took following her diagnosis, combining biting humor with searing emotion in a witty, bittersweet monologue that limns the personal and family collateral damage a life-threatening illness brings.
