The Pink Hulk: One Woman’s Journey to Find the Superhero Within

Written and Performed by Valerie David
Directors by Padraic Lillis and Maris Heller

Now battling breast cancer after fighting off lymphoma, Valerie does something most people facing cancer in their life probably wouldn’t think of doing. With a fear that she might lose “the girls”, she takes them out for one last hurrah. After all, a cancer diagnosis means only one thing: Time to get laid! And does Valerie succeed? Is there a “happy” ending? Come see it to find out! This sexy, adventurous solo show follows Valerie’s journey to seek her own “hulk-like” strength to find her superhero within to become a 3-time cancer survivor. An empowering and true story of inspiration!

About the Artist

Valerie David (playwright/performer) wrote The Pink Hulk to express the empowerment she felt being able to find humor and strength going through 3 bouts of cancer—first Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (1999), Stage II Breast Cancer (2014-2015) and then Stage IV Metastatic Breast cancer (2018-2019), which she has conquered. Valerie is a true superhero—she currently has no evidence of disease—no trace of her cancer as of April 2019. Show’s been accepted into 33 festivals, touring across the globe. Valerie & her play have been featured on TV, radio, and in publications, including NBC, CBS, FOX & BWW.
