The Weight Game
The Off-Market Theater is excited to stage “The Weight Game,” a one-woman show written and performed by Sarah Abbey.

Told through a series of vignettes, “The Weight Game” examines society’s obsessions with weight, self-esteem, and the conundrum that is peanut butter.

The audience meets Jessica, a teenage girl coming to grips with the dieting scene; Sylvia, a 50-something woman who attends Weight Watchers as a way to escape her skinny, bombastic husband; and stay-at-home mom Margaret, struggling with her strengths and weaknesses as a woman and mother. Unflinching yet sympathetic, Ms. Abbey imbues her characters with arch humor. Woven throughout the scenes are the author’s take on sorority life, reflections on the impact her third-grade students’ fondness for cupcakes has on an otherwise routine morning, and overheard conversational gems.

Sarah started developing the piece four years ago, and polished it through workshops at San Francisco’s Marsh Theatre and Joya Cory. “As a trained actor, this has been a horrifying and exhilarating experience. I’m putting it all out there, from the dialogue to the actual performance,” said Ms. Abbey. “If it tanks, I’m responsible. If it’s a success, I’m responsible. I’ll either slink out the back door to my car, or I’ll go out the front for flowers.” Performance dates are Saturday, April 24th at 2:00 p.m, and Thursday, April 29th at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $10.
