Nikki Payne: My Big Fat Donated Kidney

Nikki Payne:  My Big Fat Donated Kidney

Show type: Montreal 2009

All Nikki Payne ever wanted was to be famous. When her father fell ill and needed her to give him a kidney, she had to decide which was more important: her family or her career. Both were important! So she set out on a ridiculous adventure within the Canadian health care system and the Hollywood star machine, only to learn the two groups are oddly similar (lots of waiting). My Big Fat Donated Kidney is a story about catheters, auditions and butts hanging out of nightgowns. It shows us how messy, imperfect, and funny organ donation and love can be.
