Tess Branchflower's new show 'My Friend Ana' is a satirical black comedy, delving into the consuming world of anorexia.
'My Friend Ana' will play at The Butterfly Club for a strictly limited season this March (4 performances only). Tickets are now on sale.
'My Friend Ana' is told with a plate full of irony and a side of black comedy and offers an intimate insight into the mentality of anorexia.
The cabaret show is based on Tess' own personal experience of having an eating disorder, as well as being a witness to many others who have battled anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa or binge eating.
Whilst the subject matter is hard-hitting, Tess will approach the warped mental state of the disease through black comedy and irony.
With tips and tricks from her bestie, Ana, Tess can tell you a thing or two about how to not eat and achieve ultimate perfection - "It's not too late to stop doing damage to your body!" says Tess
'My Friend Ana' may not be suitable for anyone currently suffering from anorexia but it will be an eye-opening experience for everyone else, regardless of whether one has been personally affected by an eating disorder or not - "BYO willpower and grain of salt."
'My Friend Ana' plays at The Butterfly Club from Wednesday 7 to Sunday 11 March (no show Friday 9) at 8.30pm. Tickets for are now on sale through thebutterflyclub.com and are priced as follows:
