The C Word is a 15-minute dark comedy Two best friends (John and Laz) deal with the sudden news of John’s diagnosis of Lung Cancer. The two continue their close friendship as John struggles with the attention and sympathy that comes with his diagnosis, preferring to treat it as a smaller deal than it is. As his condition worsens, he is forced to have a heart to heart with his best friend; about his life and concern.

The film reflects upon a variety of themes, topics and subtexts, about our inner identity and how that can change, the way as people we cope with certain trauma and often use humour as a deflection of more serious issues, and the relationships with people we are close to and how these relationships and people’s perceptions can change or not change with serious news. Deep down though, it’s a tale of two best friends and an honest reflection upon the bond of friendship.

John

A charismatic, likeable and down to earth guy. Happy with his life despite his diagnosis with cancer. Has frustrations with the sympathy given to him due to his diagnosis; doesn’t want to be treated differently now and plays his cancer off like it’s not a big deal, making light of his illness. Treats his cancer like a small deal, prefers not to acknowledge it and is stubborn in ways, but despite this, he feels a vulnerability which builds throughout the movie. A smoker.

Males, aged 18 to 30

Laz

A sarcastic, witty yet charming guy. Cares deeply about his friend who means the world to him. Sharp-tongued and quick to find banter out of any situation, the funny guy of a group. Treats John no differently than before his diagnosis, uses humour to poke jokes at John and make sure he knows nothing has changed regarding his perception of John. Sarcastic, jolly but never condescending, always comes across well-meaning. Slightly overweight.

Males, aged 18 to 30
