Synopsis
Strap yourself in for this fast-paced hilarious absurdist short play! The Cure Conundrum is the farcical tale of a young scientist who makes the breakthrough that mankind has been waiting for…he discovers the cure for cancer. However, he’s not celebrated, but instead he is attacked and destroyed at every turn. An ensemble of actors play all the other characters from his disbelieving parents to fellow scientists, Board of Health officials and an imaginary wife, to a fraudulent priest and the world’s worst lawyer. The conspiracy is all laid out for us, and although the effects of what would happen if cancer were cured ends with an absurd conclusion of what the entire healthcare industry would do to protect their own interests.
