The Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine and the UMA Cultural Arts Committee join to present this solo play about body and food, as part of UMA’s academic theme of food. Big Mouth Thunder Thighs intertwines memoir storytelling with a highly-theatrical, unpredictable, and outrageously entertaining variety show featuring: roller-skating, stand-up comedy, country-western singing, flamenco dancing, a Shakespearean monologue, a Broadway style song and dance number, an Inuit folktale, an original Spoken Word-style poem, and a series of five “Death-Defying Acts.” It’s a one-woman extravaganza about hunger, appetite, largeness, enoughness, loneliness, aloneness, and what it takes for us to accept ourselves. It’s deeply personal and surprisingly funny.
