About MESS:

Partnering with Vertigo Theatre, EDSNA is proud to host a panel discussion following the powerful and thoughtful production, MESS on February 4th. This one-woman play explores the artist’s recovery from anorexia. Raw, real, funny and responsible, this production was developed through careful collaboration with renowned Eating Disorder Organization, B-EAT in the UK.

“Moving and insightful but also full of humour and warmth.”
