Through the lens of her real-life experiences with cancer, poet and playwright Priscila Uppal (6 Essential Things, Factory Theatre) creates a magical and uplifting theatrical dialogue between two old friends in the new play What Linda SaidBased on the relationship between Priscila Uppal and Linda Griffiths, the late celebrated Canadian actress, What Linda Said takes a bitingly funny, poetic and personal look at coping with cancer.

What Linda Said makes its world premiere at the 2017 Summerworks Festival, August 3 – 13, 2017 at the Factory Theatre Studio.

Two women with big imaginations exploring the unknown:

Poet Priscila was diagnosed with synovial sarcoma, a rare cancer that tends to strike young and healthy adults, at the same time that her friend Linda was nearing the end of her life and battle with breast cancer. Because of her treatment, Priscila was unable to visit Linda in her final days. In What Linda Said, the two meet in an imagined space where the living and the dead passionately, poetically, and comically explore how cancer has affected each of their lives, friendships, art, and futures.
