Upcoming events:

THIS IS CANCER is back on the road!  

Bruce Horak's award-winning one-man tour-de-force returns to the Winnipeg and Edmonton Fringe Festivals, summer 2014!

The show completely sold-out in Winnipeg and recieved RAVE reviews from CBC and the Winnipeg Free Press. 

Horak portrays the living embodiment of the disease which took his eyesight and has devastated countless lives.  "CANCER" is an egotistical character who believes that all of humanity is in love with him (we run for CANCER, we raise money for CANCER).... He's in for a rude awakening in this unconventional, dark, satirical roller-coaster ride of a show. 

"I hope I never get Cancer, but if I do - I want to imagine you as my tormentor" - Joy Mancin, Winnipeg

Equal parts Comedy and real Emotion, Cancer will leave you with a sense of hope and love.
