A Gym Thing transfers to London after an exhilarating run at the Pleasance Courtyard, 2017 Edinburgh Festival.
A post show discussion will be held on May 5th, with panelists:
Professor David Veale (World Leading Expert in BDD)
Amoreena Campbell (BDD Foundation Trustee)
Nicole Schnackenberg (BDD Foundation Trustee)
"After all if you're in shape people notice you, and being ignored is the last thing you want to happen".
Driven by a daily quest for perfection, Will takes us on a fast paced, sweaty, physical exploration of how the gym has strengthened and weakened his relationships, his physique and ultimately his life.
A complex love story from a gym addict's point of view, set within a 60 minute workout, A Gym Thing tackles body image and bigorexia (Body Dysmorphic Disorder), leaving those who don't visit the gym with a greater understanding of 'why we do what we do'.
