Description

In this cabaret exploring body standards in the entertainment industry, Abby Rose Morris details her experiences as a plus-size performer while dismantling the ever-present cultural stereotypes about fat people through jokes, media analysis and musical theatre favourites. You'll laugh! You'll cry! You'll sing along! You'll go on angry feminist tirades! Based on the popular podcast, this piece explores an issue of representation that is often ignored by the artistic community but is deeply felt by those who (literally) don't fit into the ideal.
