About This Show

How many of us have thought that things would be better if we could just be the perfect size 8? 10? 12? The perfect … whatever? Margaux Laskey’s new one-woman show, size ate, chronicles this futile quest for measured perfection and — in a unique blend of monologue, poetry, and song — illustrates the often opposing internal and external forces that drive us to obsession, addiction, and ultimately, something like self-acceptance. From a wholesome childhood of s’mores, tuna casserole, and caramel apples … to her first Slim-Fast diet at age 13 … to her haunting anorectic encounter with the ubiquitous restaurant bread basket … Laskey takes you on a non-linear journey through her adventures in body, food, and culture. By turns heartbreaking and hysterically funny, size ate is one woman’s honest commentary on — and coming to terms with — the labels, images, and assumptions we all live with.
