Description

Meet Rachel – a Northern, 20-something actress whose funny, celebratory and politically powerful one-woman play explores her true-life experience of weight gain from size 8 to 18. From audition nerves and throwaway comments to literally breaking a leg! This play is for: Anyone who has had to shrink themselves; Anyone who's adapted to be more palatable for others; Anyone who's ever put on or lost weight and been treated differently; Anyone who had free school dinners; Anyone who feels they don't fit. This unconventional show looks at the pitfalls of trying to have it all.
