FATTY FAT FAT (paperback)

Ever feel like your body takes up too much space in a world that doesn’t want to make any room? Katie is fat. Pretty much always been fat, and will be fat forever.

FATTY FAT FAT is a funny, frank and provocative solo show about living in a body the world tells you to hate. Leave your diet books at the door.


‘A funny, tender, poignant and important show which doesn’t tie the story up in a neat bow because life isn’t about convenient happy endings. Greenall has created a piece of art that will live with you long after you leave the room’
Catherine Renton, The Wee Review

‘Greenall is not just performing a show, she’s performing a radical act; one that sticks a middle finger up to society’s expectations, puts fat bodies front and centre, and does the ‘Cha Cha Slide’ while she’s at it.’
Katharine Gemmell, The List

‘In today’s society, her voice is needed so desperately and I couldn’t recommend this piece enough. I laughed throughout but left knowing that things need to change – and that we all need to be part of the solution.’
Esme Leitch, Feminist Fringe
