Taking a Hard Look at the Social Mores of Beauty and Fitness

The Most Massive Woman Wins
by Madeleine George

Directed by Susan Dignan

Challenging, brutal and hilarious, four women of various shapes and sizes sitting in the waiting room of a liposuction clinic explore their perceptions of body image. The women reveal their experiences dealing with their weight issues through monologues, short scenes, and even schoolyard rhymes. From painful childhood memories to frustrations with the opposite sex, these experiences both haunt and empower these women as they imagine their way to a new vision of themselves as beautiful and whole.

October 13-15th, 2016 – 8pm at the Gord Paynter Theatre, 280 North Park Street (North Park Collegiate). Tickets are $15 each, available in advance at the Brantford Bookworm 331 Brant Avenue, or at the door. Cash sales only.
