Presented by Succulent Theatre

Nasty: ‘big’ girls being gross, mean and sexy is an autobiographical, confessional piece of theatre about body image, eating disorders and a rebellion against the established concepts of femininity by which society strives to define us. 

We will take you on a journey through our own lived experiences as women, sharing intimate details about our body image and bad habits; both those regarding food and otherwise. Watch us share binge-eating stories, toilet disasters and tampon tales from days past, not forgetting the ‘sexy’ dancing and wacky transitions in between. 

This comedic, truthful work-in-progress is a mashup of tears, bodily fluids and all the things we were too afraid to admit. We hope to open up a conversation about the shame that society targets at women, as this piece is for ALL women and femmes who don’t feel they fit into the feminine mould this world has created for us. 

The story follows journeys of real-life self-acceptance. What could be more compelling? 


This performance contains references to eating disorders, self-harm, sex, strong language and simulated nudity throughout. To read the detailed synopsis with the content to consider, please click here.


This performance uses food on stage.
