Midnight Feast at Create Theatre

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

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
