My Left Breast is a solo performance by award-winning playwright and real-life breast cancer survivor Susan Miller. The work takes the audience on a journey through her memories. Both funny and heart-breaking, we experience moments in her life as mother, as lover, as cancer patient, as survivor. She takes us along for the ride as she grapples with the loss of her breast, her child, and her romance, as she deals with the indignities of side effects from her treatment that were worse than the disease itself. Through it all, she seeks to draw us in to her confidence, and shares her tales with the audience like old friends catching up over coffee. She makes us believe that there is a light at the end of the breast cancer tunnel.
THE NEW YORK TIMES"A metaphor of resilience... done with a self-aware humor and a literary acuteness that make her hour on the stage an enlarging experience.
"THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER" Her observations are always astute, usually wry and invite at least an inner smile of recognition. Some are laugh-out-loud funny."
