Location: Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy
1841 Broadway., 4th floor

About the Production:
“Skinny Crazy Small” is the chronicle of one quirky and strong-willed girl’s battle with anorexia nervosa. The play’s young protagonist challenges the stigmas and stereotypes that surround eating disorders, reminding audience members that recovery is possible, although it is not easy.
Inspired by events in the life of creator and performer Sylvie Mae Baldwin, “skinny crazy small” sparks discussion and transports audience members unfamiliar with the disease to anorexia’s frontlines.
“Baldwin’s performance demonstrates her malleability,” says The Daily. “She seamlessly transitions between different character roles and…does not hold back in her vulnerability.”
After a celebrated premiere in Seattle, WA “skinny crazy small” ran in April 2016 at NYC’s Theaterlab. The production was filmed this Fall and is in post-production. Stay updated at www.skinnycrazysmall.org
All performances will be followed by a post-play discussion.
