Imogene used to be sparkly, vivacious and outgoing. She used to fancy lads, have curves and love chips. Recently however she has become withdrawn, gaunt, obsessed with exercise. The reason? Caol, her new best friend, who's cast a dark shadow over Imogene's life.
Invisible to everyone except Imogene, Caol will not rest until Imogene has been reduced both emotionally and physically to a shadow of her former self.
Combining sharp writing and incredible physicality this piece aims to provoke compassion and debate around the subject of eating disorders, by separating the sufferer from the condition.
Overshadowed premiered at the Tiger Dublin Fringe festival in September 2015 where it won the Fishamble New Writing Award. This programme text was published to coincide with revivals at the Project Arts Centre Dublin and Theatre503, London, in January 2016.
