A boy collects tears in carefully labelled jam jars; a girl is horrified that her best friend thinks her father is hot; a boy bricks himself up in a Lego tower; and a young girl wears her mothers shoes…

. The Fat Girl Gets a Haircut and Other Stories is an original work created by artist Mark Storor in collaboration with a cast of young actors.

Their candid tales on themes of love, family, sexuality and religion are revealed in 13 explicit portraits. With a live band, animation and video in a 360 degree setting, The Fat Girl Gets a Haircut and Other Stories creates a vision of the world as experienced through the prism of teenage years.

Mark Storor’s recent work includes For the Best (Unicorn Theatre, London and Unity Theatre, Liverpool).

Storor has created something truly beautiful and strange.

In a world where youngsters are so often demonised and growing up is hard to do, Fat Girl proves that they have richly textured inner lives and deserve to be seen and heard.
