Fat Girl Singing

Emma has been through a lot lately. If it’s not strangers commenting on her weight or asking ‘when are you due?’, then it’s her own reflection that’s bringing her down. Now it’s time for change. Rather than crumbling to the pressure dealt out to her it’s time for her to take up space on her own terms. To be Emma as loud and as proud as she can be. 

Armed with a guitar, original songs and a fridge full of drinks, Fat Girl Singing is a funny, uplifting and compelling anthem for those who have ever felt that their body is up for debate. A call to arms for self-acceptance to those who don’t fit the model.

The debut show from Penguin Random House WriteNowLive, shortlisted writer and member of the Hodgkiss award-winning Powder Keg, Fat Girl Singing includes original songs from Manchester based theatre maker Emma Geraghty.
