Performance Notes

× So, How Should I Be? delivers a story for 10-14 year olds, but speaks to anyone who has ever thought, ‘If I’m just a bit thinner and look a little better all my problems will go away and I’ll be happy again!" -- Linda A. Carson, Playwright

Award-winning playwright Linda A. Carson takes on the pervasive and growing trend of body dissatisfaction in her world premiere of So, How Should I Be? Written for a younger audience, but with content everyone can relate to, So, How Should I Be? explores the impact that mass and social media, friends, family and our communities have on mental health, with a specific focus on eating disorders.

Angie (Orange) has a secret. She has learned how to make herself lighter, even float. What happens when she leaves the earth -- disappears? Can she survive?

The production aims to open dialogue and promote resilience. Talk-back sessions, moderated by members of the Looking Glass Foundation are offered after each performance to encourage discussion and reflection.

Everyone aged 10+

Presentation House Theatre gratefully acknowledges the Telus Community Board, Metro Vancouver, and the Looking Glass Foundation for their support of this project.
