The true story of a complicated young woman's attempts to survive anorexia and maintain a debilitatingly positive attitude in post 9/11 New York City. As a last-ditch effort to recover from eating disorders, Amie enters a 28-day addiction treatment facility and remains there for a year. Tortured by her wildly dysfunctional parents, a seductive cupcake and the ghost of a dead music icon, Amie surrenders to the fact that she may never recover... Until a new patient enters and disrupts her world forever. Best Festival Debut winner at United Solo Festival 2021, New York City.

Interview with Amie Enriquez, creator, writer, and performer

"One creates art that is meant to be seen, felt, and heard by others. There is great responsibility that comes with that!"

Tom Inniss, Voice Magazine, 14th July 2022

Amie Enriquez interview

Lightweight is a darkly comedic solo play based on my year-long stay in an addiction treatment centre (which was originally meant to be a 28 day stay) to recover from anorexia whilst desperately trying to preserve a debilitatingly cheerful disposition.
