"I’m not saying I’m not beautiful. I’m saying I’m fat AND beautiful”

Meet Rachel - a 20-something actress from Boro 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 felt like they had to shrink themselves.
Anyone who's adapted to be more palatable to 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.

Age Recommendation: 14+

Includes strong language and adult themes including "disordered eating (aka diet culture)".

“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.”
