See ‘Fat Pig’

Saturday, February 23rd, 2008 | plus size events with No Comments »

If you live in the Salem, Oregon area, then you might be interested in going to see Neil LaBute’s latest play entitled ‘Fat Pig’ which opened last week at the Salem Repertory Theatre. As the reports, LaBute chose this title precisely to make us feel guilty just by saying the name of the play, and therefore getting us into the whole mood of the play. Director by Rhett Luedtke this play toys with our sympathies, engages our emotions and keeps us off balance in this romantic comedy/drama about an uncertain young man and his plus-size girlfriend.

This play will be showing until 2nd March, 2008. Find out more about it and purchase tickets for the show if you’re interested. I’d love to go and watch, but obviously I am way out of the area. If you happen to actually go and see this play, please let me know about it and how it was by commenting below!

Plus Size and Curvy Girl Band

Sunday, April 15th, 2007 | plus size europe, plus size events, plus size news with No Comments »

Unfortunately my weekend away was cut short as I fell ill on Saturday night! Oh well, at least I tried to relax. So after sleeping away until mid-afternoon today, I hopped online to catch up on the latest happenings within the plus size world. I must say there was a good amount of news to catch up on!

The following is definitely great and exciting news for the UK plus size community. We’ve all heard, and seen on TV, music companies searching for talented candidates to create a boy band, or girl band. Well there’s a search going on in the UK right now to create a girl band, though this search has a twist! The organizers are looking to create the UK’s biggest girl band, literally! The talented girls they are searching for need to be at least a size 16!

This is a great and commendable initiative, that I hope flourishes. So who is behind this? It’s the great team at the online magazine, ‘Just as Beautiful’, who say they have been overwhelmed by the number of plus size women who have already applied for this opportunity. I can’t wait to hear further developments on this story! In the meantime read more at Herts 24 and also at Just as Beautiful.
