About this event

A "beautifully vulnerable" semi-autobiographical verbatim play examining social justice through the lens of fatism, fatphobia, and discrimination. "Inspiring, brave, authentic, educational and confronting", 'Wellness' aims to open up taboo conversations and question well-meaning motives around us.
Written by emerging writer, Ella Arendelle, we touch on sensitive subject matter and deeply personal stories. Verbatim theatre has a sting that can't be matched.

Presented by:
Ella Arendelle
