Enough is the first LGBT performance for GM Fringe 2018

Enough is the first LGBT performance for GM Fringe 2018

Enough is an explosive new solo theatre from The Naked Dietitian, the ENOUGH tour debuts at Footlights Theatre, Manchester in July 2018.
ENOUGH is a powerful solo theatre piece exposing a life of white, thin privilege through a traumatised body. Can the liberation of one award-winning self-harming poet-dietitian be connected to all liberation? This is a sexy feminist lyrically explosive performance disrupting the neoliberal delusion by being body, Mad, queer and age-positive.
ENOUGH's stylised political performance marks a new collaboration between The Naked Dietitian and New Slang Productions. The acclaimed poetry and internationally-recognised dietetic experience of Lucy Aphramor is honed to extraordinary emotional impact under Tian Glasgow's sparse direction. This startling show uses the trauma and privilege of one woman to take the audience to the lives of those left behind by the system.
Praise for The Naked Dietitian - Raise the Roof (2017):


"Once or twice in a lifetime a performance comes along that strikes a chord so pure, resonates so loudly with
your own experience, that the performer seems to have seen into your soul." 5 stars - Rosemary Kaye -
Edinburgh Reporter
"the literary lovechild of Allen Ginsberg and Jeanette Winterson..." Sara MacIntosh - Broadway Baby
Praise for New Slang Productions - Changing State (2015) & Silver Shores (2012):
"Indisputably relevant, daring and triumphant in tone..." - Words of Colour
"Silver Shores is a fine production; it tells a good story very well indeed. As producer, writer and director, Tian
Glasgow proves to be a triple threat..."
Keji Dalemo - Afridiziak Theatre News


Footlights is at Footlights House, 48 Kansas Avenue, Media City UK, M50 2GL
