FRAMES

by Louise Helfgott

What do we see when we look in the mirror? When Elizabeth looks in the mirror, she sees someone who is fat and ugly, even though her boyfriend, Ben, consistently tells her how attractive she looks. Elizabeth starts dieting but this soon spirals into an out-of-control journey into anorexia. She no longer knows who she is anymore: Lizzie as her family call her, Beth as she calls herself when she is admitted to hospital, or Elisabetta, her medieval persona, that she creates for her oracy project. The turning point comes when her family sign up for therapy and secrets that Elizabeth has held close to her heart for many years are finally revealed, leading to life-altering consequences. This new play uses innovative visual images and set design as well as a blend of humour and drama to question how people form personal constructs and perceptions of themselves.
