THE PINK HULK Comes to the Grange Hall Cultural Center
Award-winning actor, playwright and two-time cancer survivor Valerie David is debuting her critically acclaimed, comical one-woman show in the One & Only Series presented by MOXIE Productions at the Grange Hall Cultural Center in Waterbury Center, Vermont. The Pink Hulk: One Woman's Journey to Find the Superhero Within is about Ms. David becoming a two-time cancer survivor, and how she beat the odds by finding her inner super powers.
Ms. David wrote The Pink Hulk after being diagnosed with cancer not once, but twice-"hulking out" to conquer it both times! This solo play is a celebration of being comfortable in one's own skin, of embracing and accepting one's own body-no matter the shape or size. Ms. David took back the confidence she lost in her sexuality and femininity when diagnosed with breast cancer after having beaten lymphoma 15 years earlier. Her comical take on a very real and scary subject matter is sure to have audience members laughing out loud, to capture their emotions, and to inspire them to find their own inner superheroes to help them beat whatever challenges in life that come their way.
"My show is not just about fighting cancer; it has a universal message of fighting back from any adversity in life with its inspirational message of hope and empowerment," Ms. David said.
This sexy, adventurous solo show follows Valerie's journey to seek her own "hulk-like" strength to find her superhero within. An empowering and true story of inspiration! With plenty of humor- guaranteed!
Ms. David has been performing and touring the U.S. and Europe, as The Pink Hulk has been accepted into 25 different play festivals in 2 years' time winning many awards along the way, and she is thrilled to be premiering it in Vermont in February. The Pink Hulk was the recipient of Sweden's Gothenburg Fringe's WOW Award-the first time Ms. David introduced her show to an international audience. And most recently was a finalist in the New York New Works Festival.
The professional playwright and actor has received rave reviews, including one from DC Metro Theater Arts: "There is clearly nothing about Valerie that isn't exceptional. The Pink Hulk is a triumph of the one-woman show format. You can't get much better than this."
