"You want me to sign on the dotted line: I, Maddie, resign myself to being Fatty Flather for the rest of my life."

Madeline's got body image trouble.

So much so that different body parts are starting to come to life! Her tummy, butt, and thighs (personified as characters in the play) want Madeline to stay insecure and dependent on the food they tempt her with.

But Madeline doesn't want to feel bad about her body anymore. Tonight's the night she starts fighting back!
