‘Thigh Gap’ is a play written by millennial women, for millennial women

Words by Maeve Kerr-Crowley

It’s time for real talk.

Melbourne’s La Mama Theatre is set to premiere a new and absurdly feminist play next month.

Thigh Gap is a dark comedy exploring women’s bodies and the search for perfection, written by Melbournian Jamaica Zuanetti.

Targeted specifically at millennial women, the play follows two housemates navigating disordered eating and body image in the light of the politically charged #metoo movement.

Zuanetti’s previous plays Too Ready Mirror and The World Isn’t Made for Them were recognised by the Darebin Arts Speakeasy and NIDA Launchpad respectively.

You can catch her new work at La Mama between October 30 and November 10. Tickets are available here.
