Weighing In

A Play by Ger Gallagher

Starring Isobel Mahon and Rose Henderson | Directed by Caroline Fitzgerald

 

Lime Tree Theatre | Thur, Feb 14th | 8pm | €20/€18

 

Weighing-In is a fast paced comedy play about life, love and dieting – and how we all need to adjust the scales to find the right balance.

This topical play deals with the modern obsession of dieting. Set in the Easi-Slim diet club we meet the highly driven Pam (Isobel Mahon) and the motherly Breda (Rose Henderson). Both attend the weekly clinic for the weigh-in and strike up an unlikely friendship.

Easi-Slim’s recent new member – upwardly mobile Pam McGowan has cruised into town in her soft top sports car.  Pam has reached her target weight and has only signed up to maintain, and brag about the four stone she’s lost. Breda has diligently attended the Easi-Slim meetings but just can’t manage to win the battle of the bulge– until Pam comes along to power-walk her into shape.

Breda becomes a disciple of the high-priestess of low-carbs and is bowled over by just how fabulous Pam’s jet-set lifestyle really is.  With her low-calorie intake and rigorous exercise regime, Pam certainly lives life in the fasting lane.  In fact, the only part of Pam that weighs too much is her over-bloated ego.  Breda’s gushing admiration for her new diet guru buddy only serves to make Pam all the more condescending and insufferable. However, when Pam’s mask begins to slip, Breda is reminded that things aren’t always what they appear to be. Sometimes, you already have the life you wished for.
