Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras in association with Theatre Works and wreckedAllprods present:
A delicious new interactive cabaret banquet, Cake Daddy will plunge you belly-deep inside one gorgeous queer man’s experience of fat/ness, laying bare both the fortitude and fabulosity required to step into the world as a fat person today.
Cake Daddy is about being fat in a fat-phobic world. It’s about owning the word fat and refusing the scare-mongering and hatred-inspiring messages about an epidemic of obesity. It’s about not apologising for taking up space, not trying to diet, not trying to make oneself quiet, not trying to change one's body size.
Ross Anderson-Doherty invites you into his world, one that veers like a set of dieter’s scales between the lightness of Cake Daddy and the heavy weight of public opinion.
After the show on Thursday 21 February, Kelli Jean Drinkwater will do a Q&A with Ross Anderson-Doherty.
