Fat Chance

"I'm not saying I'm not beautiful, I'm saying I'm fat AND beautiful!"

By Rachel Stockdale

Directed by Jonluke McKie

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.

"Eat your heart out Jo Brand, there’s a new girl on the block and one with a message to boot." The Reviews Hub ⭐⭐⭐⭐

“On rare occasions, if you’re lucky, you get to see a theatre performer who changes the way you see the world. So it was when Rachel Stockdale held stage and audience… in Fat Chance.” North East Bylines ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
