‘Fat’ isn’t a dirty word… but it might as well be.

All her life, Miriam Cheong has observed people tiptoeing around the word and the many assumptions and stereotypes attached to it. It’s just how things have always been – from her time as an unwilling member of her school’s Trim and Fit (TAF) Club, to her trials and tribulations as a working actress in Singapore today.

Honestly… it’s enough to make anybody swear!

Candid, vulnerable and eye-opening, The Other F Word examines Miriam’s relationship with her body, the body positivity movement and the people around her as she navigates the ups and downs of weight loss.

What exactly is so taboo about being fat? How does society perceive and treat the fat body? And how can we better discuss weight and health in a world obsessed with thinness?

Come chew the fat with us when this funny, frank play makes its world premiere at The Ngee Ann Kongsi Theatre in March!
