Parallel with Eating Disorders Awareness Week, Thin Toes by Laura Stevens examines art, exhibitionism and anorexia.

Meg was once a famous artist but is now struggling with wife in the background, her daughter Andrea has talent to burn but doesn’t know how to use it and best friend Lucy is desperately seeking the love of a normal family. Over a six month period Lucy battles to save her friend from the horrors of anorexia, as Andrea chases a "perfect weight" that draws her further and further away from her mother Meg.

Thin Toes is the first full length play by Laura Stevens, a twenty five year old graduate of Soho Theatre Young Writers Course, and Royal Court Young Writers programme as well as a Goldsmith’s MA in scriptwriting.
