    This play holds an incredible truth about existence while somehow being so funny...and so not. I love how this play gets right to the issue of what it means to be "fit" and challenges the reader/audience to examine their own relationship with "fitness" and offers a thorough dissection of what that even means. I love this play! A perfect snapshot of our current hilarious problematic reality.

    Who knew a take-down of diet culture could be so funny and sexy and surreal? (Courtney knew, I guess). And while she reveals the role a dysfunctional culture plays in body-shame, the story is ultimately about our inner demons becoming external and how we self sabotage despite our better judgement. It's a bitter pill to swallow, but Courtney explores our collective trauma through absurdist delight and an honesty that's hard to deny. Highly recommend!

    Courtney Meaker's "Tiny Thin Woman Inside" blends a biting dark humor and touching human connection in this increasingly surreal (yet horrifyingly truthful) descent into a culture relentlessly obsessed with selling women a thinner, lesser version of themselves. The play explores bodies, queerness, and our (quite literal) battles with our inner demons. I've never read a play before that so honestly and brutally articulated what it means to be fat in a world that constantly demands that we be less - that we either be another version of ourselves, or not ourselves at all.

    I love this play. It IS: humor, fury, and sex in a funhouse world of body obsession. It is NOT: apologetic.

    A funny funny dark in your face play that makes you wanna throw your salad out the window. Courtney is a fresh,bold voice and this play talks about body image in a way you've never seem before.
