Breasts. They’re part of who we are. So, what happens when we part ways?
For breast cancer patients, making choices about surgery is incredibly complex. The Cut Of It is a unique exploration of the decisions real women made when they were diagnosed with cancer.
Based on recent research with patients in Newfoundland and Labrador, this performance will make you think about the choices we make, the support we offer, and the care we receive.
As part of the production for ’The Cut of It’, we believe it is our duty to inform audiences of material that may be difficult to hear. Please be advised the performance contains emotional accounts adapted from participants in a research study about breast cancer diagnosis, treatment and after care.
