"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. “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 ★★★★★ "I've never felt an audience collectively hold its breath in sheer shock and anticipation. This is raw and this is real." The Crack Magazine ★★★★★ Age guidance 14+ - 'Includes strong language, adult themes including "disordered eating (aka diet culture)" and references to being a survivor of abuse.' Written & Performed by Rachel Stockdale Directed by Jonluke McKie
