"Red Jasper" is my new play which I hope to have on a San Diego stage in 2020-21. It is the story of an older woman who falls in love in the middle of chemo treatment for breast cancer. In interviewing dozens of women who have undergone cancer treatment, I realized that most people often say the wrong thing or don't say or do anything at all to family and friends who have cancer. "Red Jasper" is a comedy with romance and an empathetic heart. My goal is to have cancer survivors look onstage and say, "that's right, that's just how I felt" or "that happened to me". I want them to laugh at the parts of the play that may make others cringe. If anyone has undergone cancer treatment, I am always happy and appreciative to discuss their experience. I have a series of 10 questions about different aspects of their journey that we can go over if they so choose. They can always contact me at docmmm2@gmail.com if they're interested.
