THE PINK HULK One-Woman Show Makes Stockholm Premiere At STOFF-X This September

Award-winning actor, playwright and cancer survivor Valerie David is thrilled to return to Sweden in her critically acclaimed, comical one-woman show The Pink Hulk: One Woman's Journey to Find the Superhero Within this September with a Stockholm premiere at STOFF-X. Last year The Pink Hulk was awarded the WOW award in the Gothenburg Fringe Festival "for the show that inspired awe in its audiences with its creativity, humour and content." The Pink Hulk details Ms. David's battle with cancer and how she beat the odds by finding her inner super powers.

Ms. David "hulked out" on cancer. Her 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. Her comical take 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 conquer any adversity in their own lives.

"My show is not just about fighting cancer; it has a universal message of hope and empowerment," Ms. David said. And after all, a cancer diagnosis means only one thing: Time to pursue a little somethin' somethin' on the side! Ms. David has been performing worldwide in 26 different venues since its debut in 2016, receiving rave reviews and winning several awards along the way.
