So many of my audiences post show asked how they might help donate to the show. So I have created a fund for it.

In June, the show is will travel to Ottawa, Hamilton and Winnipeg (Canada), then shoot over to the UK, Edinburgh, with a possible late addition of Dublin and Amsterdam (TBA).

If you’d like to help us get the show there, to represent Australia with our sense of larrikin humour that prevails throughout even the hardest times, you are welcome to donate.

A bit about Lovely Lady Lump:

“Let me start by telling you I am OK. I’m just in a small situation involving a pesky cancer tumour in my left nork, but I’m not dying and I am the luckiest person in the entire world.”

In 2014, Lana was diagnosed with breast cancer. In an unmissably vibrant mix of storytelling, rounded character work, stand-up, silly dances, ridiculous puppetry, and animated projections of her real imaging, she has made a show that is touching, real, raw and hilarious, skilfully making mutated cells the butt of the joke. Cos cancer seriously deserves to be laughed out of town.
