First Fortnight in assocation with Bodywhys presents Sunday’s Child

Imogene used to be sparkly, vivacious and outgoing. She used to fancy lads, have curves and love chips.
Recently however she has become withdrawn, gaunt, obsessed with exercise.
The reason? Caol, her new ‘best friend’, who has cast a dark shadow over Imogene’s life. Invisible to everyone except Imogene, Caol will not rest until Imogene has been reduced both emotionally and physically to a shadow of her former self.
This moving and insightful piece by award-winning company Sunday’s Child aims to provoke compassion and debate around the subject of eating disorders.
“A dark, compassionate, sometimes funny exploration of eating disorders”
