Event description

Description

PLEASE is a performance which will awaken the heart of humanity.

A debilitating desire to PLEASE is one of the most familiar and most misunderstood characteristics of those who are struggling with eating disorders.

In verbatim theatre, words are taken from real life and performed by characters on stage, transferring their true emotional power straight to an audience. In PLEASE, the text comes from interviews with women who have struggled with eating disorders at various stages of their lives. Through dance, music and monologues the audience will be transported to the illusive sanctuary of ‘The Eating Disorder’.

This performance combined with future research aims to help guide policy on this harrowing condition; when performed as theatre it will tell the human stories that numbers and clinical analysis can’t reveal.

Revolutionise your understanding of eating disorders. Don’t miss this opportunity.
