Tell us about your show.

Big Sister is the awkward brainchild of two sisters. It is the true story of older sister Naomi’s 70-pound weight loss written through the perspective of younger sibling Deborah. It is the first time that actor Naomi and writer Deborah have come together to tell their story of sibling-ship, weight loss, and borrowed clothes.

Describe your show in three words.

Funny. Vulnerable. Irresponsible.

Why should someone come see your show?

Big Sister is a brand new all-female comedy about weight loss and sisterhood. It is a collaboration between two Vancouver-based artists who have come together to speak honestly and openly about their relationship to their bodies and to each other. If you’ve ever felt ashamed of how you look, or if you’ve ever wanted to say the unsaid to your sibling, or if you just want to laugh, come to Big Sister.

If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?

Is Jenny Slate a superhero?

If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe Festival this year, besides your own, what show would that be?

We’re stoked for Vampires in Barcelona.
