De Botty Buisness
This specific production does not yet have a description, but the play itself does:
When Mr. Maxwell is faced with the possibility of being tested for prostate cancer, he panics. He turns to his friends and family for support, who offer him all sorts of advice – some more helpful than others! “De Botty Business” is a humorous take on the cultural myths, fears and taboos surrounding prostate cancer in African-Caribbean communities.
African-Caribbean men are three times more likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer than white men. Despite this, men from these communities are less likely to get the targeted help and support they need. This play aims to entertain whilst also educating the audience about the facts surrounding prostate cancer.
All proceeds from ticket sales go to The Prostate Cancer Charity.
