Off the Scales

January 2020 - Present

'Off the Scales' is a new musical in development, created by Kate McStraw. The concept is born from Kate’s experience of being a Weight Watchers member and having experienced what happens when a group of people, who wouldn’t ordinarily meet, come together to support each other on a weekly basis.

I am working with Kate as one of her creative collaborators on the project. We're currently in the early stages of research and development - in this initial stage I’m a listener and story collector. And later on in the project I will be a performer too.

As part of the process of making the show I am hosting one on one conversations with anyone who has attended a weight-loss group. The aim is to retell real life and authentic stories and share ‘what happens when a group of people, who wouldn’t ordinarily meet, come together to support each other?’.
