"Sex, Pies & A Few White Lies" is Monica Parker’s hit one-woman show is funny, heartbreaking, as well as a love story - but perhaps most importantly, a life affirmation that will leave you and your friends wanting more.
Five pounds too much or fifty brings on a full menu of psychosis from an obsessive stalking of bakers, a committed avoidance of mirrors and a determination to drown out the judgement of all those skinny gym rats which ultimately leads to the pendulum swing of endless dieting, binging, purging and ultimately - gratitude.
Without this endless struggle I wouldn’t be the woman I am today. Without the 101 humiliations I have endured and inflicted upon myself, I would not have the humor, perspective and insight allowing me to be so grateful for being exactly me. And that is my goal - to make you laugh a lot, wince a little and celebrate every single flaw whatever they may be, because they are our ticket to dancing down our own path… Life is short - Eat dessert first!
