Live Theatre Newcastle and The Pleasance Edinburgh Festival Fringe, 2022
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's ever put on or lost weight
Anyone who had free school meals
Anyone who's tried to have it all.
