Januaryresolutions: diets, gyms, good intentions. As if they’re not all year, all life concerns. What if those resolutions are already obsessions for some? What if those obsessions dominate your life, giving you acute mental health problems? We enjoy London and life to the fullest, but something as simple as going out for dinner can be an explosive minefield for those with body image issues, anorexia and bulimia. One particular writer and performer is taking her own experiences and fears and in true artist fashion, channels it into a one-woman comedy cookery show.
Helen Duff, ‘writer, performer, character comedian, trained in English, Drama … and clowning. Now, her show, ‘Vanity Bites Back’ has smoothly shifted from Edinburgh, to be part of Vault Festival. Aspiring cookery host Jill takes us on a messy, dark, but hopefully enlightening journey. Getting up close and personal.
Descend into the vaults. Leave your comfort zone and prepare to laugh. Maybe uncomfortably, but uproariously. Much better than a night at the gym.
