Ob­ses­sion with di­et­ing the fo­cus of play

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

A top­i­cal play deal­ing with the mod­ern ob­ses­sion of di­et­ing takes place in the Whale Theatre Grey­stones on Thurs­day, May 31.

Weigh­ing In, which is writ­ten by Ger Gal­lagher, is be­ing staged by Dol­men Productions.

Weigh­ing-In is a fast paced com­edy play about life, love and di­et­ing and how we all need to ad­just the scales to find the right bal­ance.

Set in the Easi-Slim diet club, the au­di­ence meets the highly driven Pam (Iso­bel Ma­hon) and the moth­erly Breda (Rose Hen­der­son), who both at­tend the weekly weighin and strike up an un­likely friend­ship.

Easi-Slim’s new­est mem­ber, the up­wardly mo­bile Pam McGowan, has cruised into town in her soft top sports car. Pam has reached her tar­get weight and has only signed up to main­tain – and brag about – the four stone she’s lost.

Breda has dili­gently at­tended the meet­ings but just can’t man­age to win the bat­tle of the bulge un­til Pam comes along to power-walk her into shape.

Breda be­comes a dis­ci­ple of the high-priest­ess of low-carbs and is bowled over by just how fab­u­lous Pam’s jet-set lifestyle re­ally is. How­ever, when Pam’s mask be­gins to slip, Breda is re­minded that things aren’t al­ways what they ap­pear to be. Some­times, you al­ready have the life you wished for.

The play takes place on May 31 at 8 p.m. with doors at 7 p.m. To book con­tact www. whalethe­atre.ie or call 01 2010550.
