You are cordially invited to a dinner party to celebrate one fat woman’s decision to lose weight. Join us for a delicious, five course meal examining diet culture, representation, and what it’s really like to be a fat woman in today’s society. There’s singing. There’s dancing. There’s even cake. Because we all deserve dessert! (In moderation of course!) Remember: nothing tastes as good as skinny feels, right?....right?
"i will eat you alive" was inspired by and written after a series of interviews conducted between fat playwright, Katie Hileman, and a community of self-identified fat women and femmes.
We are fat. We are here. And we will eat you alive.
Plans for a Baltimore remount and subsequent 2021 tour cancelled due to COVID-19.
