Theatre hosts midnight feast like no other

A dynamic performance – Chewing The Fat – explodes into Create Theatre on Saturday 20 September, bringing Kit Kats, glitter, rice pudding and laughter.

Chewing the fat will explore how eating habits today affect us

In an age where ‘fat’ is a dirty word, performance artist Selina Thompson has made a show just about that – fat. Part theatre, part stand-up, part raucous romp into Selina’s life as an overweight woman, the show comes to Mansfield’s newest theatre.

Selina invites the audience to her own version of a midnight feast, somewhere between confessions made over a coffee at weight watchers, and the drunken story-telling of a 3am kebab.

Chewing the Fat is a powerful and extremely open portrayal of how we live with our bodies, on both the days when they are beautiful, and the days when they are a burden.

The show was performed at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival and now starts its autumn tour. The show at Create Theatre starts at 7.30pm and tickets cost £11, £9 for concessions or for £36 a group ticket admits four. To purchase call 01623 413363 or visit www.createtheatre.co.uk
