Hear Me Raw (Áine Flanagan Productions and Lipsink in association with United Agents)

By | Published on Tuesday 15 August 2017

Written and performed by Daniella Isaacs, ‘Hear Me Raw’ is a one-woman whirlwind tour into the world of clean eating and control. At the beginning, Ella proudly displays her self-published “wellness” book, giving the audience a very brief background into her life and her wellness journey, as well as exploring some of the more popular clean eating ingredients. But things are not entirely as they seem and soon begin to unravel. Superbly written and fantastically acted, ‘Hear Me Raw’ tiptoes the line between laugh out loud funny and pure raw emotion, creating the perfect mix of satire and honesty. Whether or not you know your matcha from your chia seeds, this is a show you won’t want to miss.

Underbelly George Square, until 27 Aug.
