Weʼre raising £25,000 to help us take on anorexia! A compelling theatre piece for the Edinburgh Festival to highlight the struggles of those facing this disease.

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

Anorexia is an increasingly prevalent illness in today's society, and devastating for sufferers and families alike. ‘Eat Me’ is a dramatic exploration of three character’s struggle with Anorexia, as we watch Libby, Kate and Jonathan fight to regain control of their lives from the fourth character, ‘Anorexic Voice’. In an innovative piece of story-telling written from personal experience by playwright Suzanna Walters, this is a hugely compelling insight into the seductive manipulation of this cruel mental illness. As their stories weave between present and past, ‘Eat Me’ will shed light on Anorexia’s iron grip on the sufferer’s mind, body and soul while bringing a message of hope for recovery.

Matrix Theatre Company will be performing 'Eat Me' at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to bring awareness and highlight the struggles that sufferers face, and how, together with support, they can take on and overcome this evil force.

What will your support do for us, and what will you get in return? Primarily, on both sides, you will help others gain a greater understanding of this potentially deadly mental illness, and give them tools to help and support their loved ones, as well as providing hope of recovery and life to those who struggle. But here is a list of the specific ways you will be helping us, and how we will reward that support:

    This is amazing! A huge thank you to all our supporters for getting us this far. We still have a way to go, so please share far and wide. This play has had a huge impact already, in only 2 performances, so help us take on anorexia and bring this message of hope to many more. Thank you.
