Big Girl

40 mins





Please collect tickets at The House Studio from 20 minutes before the performance begins

Big Girl: is a one person show that fuses stand up comedy, spoken word and movement. It is a homage to my life so far.

Emily Jane Rooney shares her ridiculous experiences around body positivity and what life has been like growing up as a working class fat woman from Essex. Sharing some of her open minded opinions on the world today and sharing herself with you all. Taking a trip down memory lane at some of the situations that she believes have imprinted on her life.

Big Girl is a journey of self acceptance, learning what loving yourself really is and loving the person you have become whilst understanding where you have been. A review of one person’s life, and the women in it – just simply talking about the elephant in the room (me) with slight nudity (no nipples though).
