“Thomas, a Moth Story SLAM winner, has a winning way and a lot of shocking details.

 

From “defensive dating” to a string of doctors, this is a story of a strong woman who kicked cancer and got rid of the toxic people in her life. Thomas reminds us all to participate fully in life, to trust and let go. And she leaves you wondering where you can get your hands on some psilocybin."

GAIL THOMAS'
SOLO SHOW

PATIENT 13

WRITTEN  BY

Gail Thomas

DIRECTED BY

Dan Oliverio

PRODUCED BY

Jennifer Sorenson

Chronically single, Gail has always been good at staying busy, setting boundaries and avoiding intimacy. That is, until a scary diagnosis makes her realize that she might just need to slow down, chill out, and get some help. But, who can she trust?

 

“I got rid of all the toxic people and there was no one left.”

 

This dark comedy solo show tracks Gail’s quest to find the line between herself and others after a cancer diagnosis and her participation as patient #13 in a ground-breaking FDA study that gave psilocybin (magic mushrooms) to cancer patients with anxiety and depression. The study has blazed a trail for the potential legalization of the psychedelics for use as a medical treatment.

 

Gail has been interviewed by the New York Times, the Atlantic (Michael Pollan), VSauce, and CNN and now you can hear the whole story live!

"PATIENT 13 is a gripping roller coaster ride of emotions.  As she skillfully recounts her story, I am in awe of her perseverance and impressed by her resilience. I was deeply moved witnessing her standing ovation, seeing the tears of joy streaming down her face… Go for the story and leave with Hope.
