About the Show
Lightweight is a one-woman play about the true story of a complicated young woman's attempts to survive anorexia and maintain a debilitatingly positive attitude in post 9/11 New York City. As a last-ditch effort to recover from eating disorders, Amie enters a 28 day addiction treatment facility and remains there for a year. Tortured by her wildly dysfunctional parents, a seductive cupcake and the ghost of a dead music icon, Amie surrenders to the fact that she may never recover... Until a new patient enters and disrupts her world forever.
