The Jack and Millie Production

By Alaine Beek

I’m fundraising for Cancer Council Victoria to help stop cancer.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011 Thankfully I got it early but it is a life learning journey. It has changed my perspective on so many things, often in a good way and I want to share that with anyone affected by cancer. I am a playwright and decided I wanted to put my skills to good use. I am working on a new play 'Jack and Millie' which is based on my cancer journey but from a very unique perspective. Millie is diagnosed with breast cancer, Jack IS her cancer. The play is about how she deals with 'Jack' - he is often frightening yet sometimes he gives her courage. And sometimes he is just plain hilarious through his very honest viewpoints on life and people. The plan is that the play will be produced and performed next year but until restrictions are lifted I'm not able to be specific re timing or venue. When tickets are available, a portion will go towards Cancer Council but in the meantime, if you would like to donate to Cancer Council Victoria, via my 'Jack and Millie' project, please do so.
