About the Show/Event

Information for Oddball at Upstairs at the Gatehouse, Inner London (One person show). All Oddball has to do is behave like a normal person on a date. Easy. It's in a restaurant though. Restaurants have food. And other people. Food and people. She might pull her skin off with pliers. That's normal... right? Putting the 'logical' in 'pathological,' this one woman show invites audiences into the brain of a person with an eating disorder, to explore thought processes which - quite frankly - don't always make sense from an outsider's perspective. Oddball uses sound-design, silliness, and zero respect for the 4th wall to debunk stigma surrounding a disorder which is still misunderstood as ?vain.' No romance. No romcom crisis recovery arc. That's been done. And it's rubbish. 'It's 2019. We are all pretty good at talking about mental health, depression, anxiety, addiction. But I cringe every time I have to explain why I was in and out of hospitals from the age of 13-20... That's not cool.' Francesca Forristal It's time to change the narrative. Now all Oddball has to do is deconstruct every toxic preconception society has on eating disorders - in 60 mins. Piece of cake... Wait.
