Big Girls Club at the Binge Festival

Between Teddy and I, ETG is constantly making proposals for theater festivals in and around NYC to get our work produced in front of an audience- such as yourself (Teddy's Untitled is still coming up at the HOT Festival at Dixon Place- don't forget!) Details are pending but we just received confirmation that Big Girls Club, a short play I am in the process of writing (and partially devising with Katie Hannigan) is going to be a part of Working Man's Clothes' Binge Festival this August. Big Girls Club will be an exploration of women's fetishism with unhealthy food as well as our simultaneous self-loathing, yet celebratory attitude toward our own gender. The piece centers around big girls Leah, Katie and Mary M. ( keeping in mind the term big girls refers to an attitude, not a size), on a single night, taking part in BGC (founded by Luke List) a commonly known universal event where women of all age groups binge on extremely unhealthy food in solidarity. While most people were partying this weekend, Chase, Katie and I (Mary M. is out of town on a dance retreat until late July) took some promo pics in my bathroom. We're all winners here. Above is Chase's rough cut of the final poster ( there is still missing text at the bottom regarding show dates and times) where our concept was to fill the tub with BGDs ( Big Girl's Delights). Here are also some photos of the preparation for the shoot:

that will preserve the BGDs.


Chase sneaking a BGD in between shots ( we bought $14 worth of Little Debbies!)


Inception of the BGD tub!!!!



( I secretly don't really like sweets that much...)


Kudos to Chase and his neon colored illusions :-)


More to come on BGD as well as Untitled- a play!!!! Happy Monday!
