BIG MOUTH THUNDER THIGHS, a solo play about body and food, intertwines memoir storytelling with a highly-theatrical, unpredictable, and outrageously entertaining variety show featuring: roller-skating, stand-up comedy, country-western singing, flamenco dancing, a Shakespearean monologue, a Broadway style song and dance number, an Inuit folktale, original Spoken Word-style poems, and a series of five "Death-Defying Acts." And, in the crucial role of the perfectionist arch nemesis is Skinny Bitch, a puppet like you've never seen before. It's a one-woman extravaganza about hunger, appetite, largeness, enoughness, loneliness, aloneness, and what it takes for us to accept ourselves. It's deeply personal and surprisingly funny.
