'What nourishes me destroys me.'

Strip Theatre presents this unusual and striking play by Isley Lynn.

Tessa’s home. Unannounced.
Michael has stopped eating again.
She makes a deal with him – she’ll stay, but will only eat what he eats.
Michael, however, plays by his own rules.

A brave, boldly original and unashamedly frank insight into one couple's battle with anorexia and each other.


Isley Lynn is a graduate of the Royal Court Young Writers Programme, and her work has been produced and supported by National Theatre Studio, Nabokov, Arcola Theatre and BAC.

"brilliantly...written and performed" ★★★★ Whatsonstage

'high tension...informative and sensitive...With exemplary acting (...), set design, lighting and sound, this is the kind of production that makes the lovely Tristan Bates Theatre a safe bet for a great night out.' The Stage


Thu 14 Feb - post-show discussion with Men Get Eating Disorders Too

Post-show discussion event with Men Get Eating Disorders Too (MGEDT), an award-winning national charity dedicated to representing and supporting the needs of men with eating disorders.

Panel includes:
- Sam Thomas, Founder-Director of MGEDT, who founded the organisation in 2009 following his own experience of - and recovery from - an eating disorder throughout his teens, having found it particularly difficult to get support because he was male. Sam's work has been recognised in the Shelia McKechnie Campaigner Awards, Beacon Prize, Beat Awards and the Talk Talk Digital Heroes Awards.
- Fellow MGEDT trustee, Hugh Smith, who currently works at the Community & Voluntary Sector Forum and the NHS Local Involvement Network in Brighton

The discussion will explore how stigma and gender stereotypes and other barriers affect male sufferers seeking support with eating disorders and how these can be tackled.
