A comedic romp through depression, eating disorders and self-loathing!
Crack Whore, Bulimic, Girl-Next-Door is a one-act play chronicling one woman’s journey through her depression and bulimiarexia. It is a painfully funny look at body image, addiction, and the obsession with fitting into society’s ideal of beauty and thinness.
It is part poetry and prose, part sketch and part narrative with a few snappy dance numbers mixed in. Three actresses portray one woman in various stages of her eating disorder and crippling depression. They are joined by one male actor portraying various influences in her childhood development, teenage years and young adulthood.
This autobiographical theatrical experience intimately exposes the perils of womanhood, the rawness of living through sexual trauma and culminates in discovering the inner strength to live comfortably in one’s own skin.

“…even with comedy’s softening touch, this is a piece fueled by rage. It cries injustice in a voice first raised in The Trojan Women, and Iphigenia in Aulis; it assaults our comfort with a fierceness that would make Antonin Artaud and Berthold Brecht proud.” -Mark Hein, http://theatreghost.org/

“…the brightest happiest portrayal of the dark I’ve seen in lifetime-esk women’s stories; a thoroughly humorous exploration of the darkest pains. If you are a woman who has been through the dark on the way to loving herself, this is the beautiful medicine you need.” – Scathach Cotter, https://scathachcotter.wordpress.com/2019/06/09/painfully-beautiful/
