Why do we eat? Why do we stop eating? This one woman show is an autobiographical story traveling from early childhood experiences of queerness and lessons on body image, to a college eating disorder, to the present challenges of eating and living in a human body.
This program is sponsored by the Clarke Forum for Contemporary Issues and is part of Love Your Body Week programming.
