“PHAT GIRLS” by Debbie Lamedman

Time:     7:30 – 9:00

Tickets:  $7 general admission, free for Pacific University students with ID.  Tickets can be purchased at the door.


"Phat Girls" is a provocative, fast-paced and cutting-edge show about the struggle many women experience dealing with weight and body image. The audience is transported from childhood to adulthood, witnessing the development and many facets of an eating disorder, in addition to how these women learn to survive in a body-conscious society. We see inner demons personified as we follow each woman on her journey towards self-acceptance. “Phat Girls” relates to these issues with humor, poignancy, and an honesty to which everyone will relate.


The play is as relevant and appropriate to high school students as it is to adults.


After each performance we will have a group discussion, led by a Wellness Coordinator, for anyone who wants to remain behind to talk about elements of the play.  


Join us for an evening of laughing, crying, and coming face to face with human frailty and resilience
