Staged reading presented by La Mama Theatre 22nd September 2018.

Two women. One apartment. They’re surrounded by flashy lipstick ads, wellness trends and dating apps. The women self-examine and compare, examine and compare. They’re aiming for something. They’re aiming for a thigh gap and they don’t know why.

Thigh Gap is an absurd, dark comedy that explores, from a female perspective, consumerism and the commodification of female bodies in a capitalist patriarchy.
