Keep It Down
  • Camden Fringe

Comedy-drama Keep It Down follows Daisy - a 23 year old singleton as she stumbles between shady one night stands, failed relationships, and yet another celebration that revolves around food. Ever since Daisys mum died shes found a way to cope, its not a helpful strategy but its the one she knows best. Falling back on old habits and sporadic attempts at sustaining a work-life balance is a recipe for disaster. The one-woman play confronts an unspoken narrative on eating disorders and the obstacles one faces when fueled by secrecy and shame. To leave behind negative coping mechanisms Daisy must come to terms with her grief and find new ways to heal.Its not easy being immersed in a world that thrives on diet culture, especially if you try fighting it alone. Daisy must allow herself to rely on an archaic system held together by a select few good eggs - alongside the mediocracy of normal life, dating, working and socialising of course.Keep It Down is the dark but hilarious play exploring just how all-consuming eating disorders can be.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
