After joining an office initiative to lose weight, Mickey vomits her Tiny Thin Woman Inside into existence. Inspired by the popular meme that there’s a tiny, thin woman inside every woman if she’d only stop eating “crap,” Tiny Thin Woman Inside explores the relationship women have with their bodies, media representations of weight loss, dating while fat, and general anxiety about the violence inherent in trying to fit into a societal norm of size.

This production contains adult themes and violence. Trigger warning: This performance contains subject matter related to eating disorders, which may be triggering to some people.
