A funny, informative, frank, inspiring & entertaining play about prostate cancer.

Award-winning playwright Jeff Metcalf has written a remarkably honest and outrageously funny play about his experience with prostate cancer. This one-man play, based on his personal journals, follows Jeff's journey from diagnosis to treatment—and how he coped along the way.

Above all, A Slight Discomfort is about living. Its universal themes and appeal are not limited to men. As one female audience member put it, "I have a prostate—I've been married to the same man for 20 years!"

A Slight Discomfort explores the shared experience of being human and confronting crisis with grace and humor.
