    How long, and how tight, should you hold on to a part of yourself that's no longer there? It's the most wrenching question in "Lopsided," EA Kafkalas' searching play. This drama explores the raw side of breast cancer, from the scars of surgery to the damaged self-image—and at the same time embraces a sense of strength and hope. Kafkalas reminds us that the membrane between being shallow and being human is paper thin.

    The plot revolves around four college friends who have reunited in London for the marriage of their friend, Dr. Mary Lewis. Megan, a photographer, discovers her best friend, Laurie, a high school teacher, has been fighting breast cancer for the past seven months. Laurie kept her illness a secret from Megan because Megan lost her lover to inflammatory breast cancer. Despite Laurie’s positive attitude, her self-esteem has been shattered by the mastectomy and her ex-boyfriend’s insensitivity. Complicating Laurie’s weekend is the thought of seeing Gail, who still believes that Laurie stole her boyfriend in college.

    Written by EA Kafkalas and presented by WatermelonAlligator Theatre Company.
