fart sniffing, wedgie removal, depraved kinks and that time you said the most
horrific thing you’ve ever said to a friend. What would that look like?
Wonder no further, the big girls have gone to the trouble of showcasing some
of their lowest moments, on stage. Almost unrealistically relatable, this
completely autobiographical show will take you on a tour of the pressures of
the modern female when it comes to her looks, behaviour, and appetites (both
sexual, food related and otherwise). This is a show for all women and femmes
who feel they don’t quite fit into the mould society has created for them,
and/or anyone who has prodded their lumpy bits in a mirror.
Join Rio and Amy in a
bathroom of their own creation, as they revisit their respective childhoods
and reflect on where they have brought them today. There will be vomit, there

‘big’ girls being gross, mean and sexy’ is a piece of autobiographical,
confessional theatre about body image, eating disorders and the rebellion

Succulent Theatre Collective – We make autobiographical, confessional theatre
that challenges, excites and educates. We appreciate that harnessing our own
lived experience and recounting our stories can provide a sense of catharsis,
of escapism and freedom for the audience as well as ourselves. Using our
experiences to create theatre, we empower ourselves and anyone else who can
relate to them. We strive to find the universal within the personal.
