Stuffed, which was recently presented at the Westport Country Playhouse under the working title Fat Girls, Interrupted, will be presented in a one-night-only June 25 special event at the Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor, NY.
Lampanelli will be joined by Broadway actress Lisa Howard (It Shoulda Been You) for the reading. Show time is 8 PM.
According to Bay Street, Stuffed “tackles weight, body image, and food issues from the perspective of four very different women with four very different problems. Delivered both in monologues and as interactions between the characters, the stories the four women tell are full of humor, soul, and passion, and will resonate with everyone who has struggled with food issues—or indeed, an addiction or compulsion of any kind. Stuffed will do for weight and food issues what The Vagina Monologues did for women’s nether-regions.”
The stand-up comic has been shifting creative gears in recent years, developing the play that takes a page from her own life. She's been outspoken about her decision to have gastric sleeve surgery in 2012, which resulted in the comedian having lost over 100 lbs.
Stuffed is the first in a series of four plays Lampanelli is penning about women’s issues.
