Jack & Millie
Saltwater Community Centre
153 Saltwater Promenade, Point Cook, Victoria 3030
February WED 17 - SAT 27
The premier launch of a new play based on the author’s true story of dealing with the mental challenges and sometimes funny moments of a cancer diagnosis. We all respond differently to life changing news. Millie, a fifty something professional at the peak of her career, is about to find out just how quickly life can change when she’s diagnosed with breast cancer. Millie deals with her shock diagnosis by creating an imaginary friend called Jack.
Jack helps Millie make sense of a world that has been turned upside down. The play, whilst highly entertaining, also offers genuine insights into dealing with long term health issues, like breast cancer.
WHAT WAS THAT?
