I have a young friend who is using theater for raising public awareness.
Actress and playwright Sylvie Mae Baldwin announces the world premier of her original one-woman play skinny crazy small. And I am delighted to promote it.
The play chronicles the 8 year battle of a young girl with anorexia, seeking to give new voice to the discussion of this illness and to advocate for breaking down stereotypes.
She has an Indiegogo campaign for skinny crazy small that is live for just a few more weeks. Funds will allow Baldwin to pay her director and technical director a fair wage, as well as to rent rehearsal and performance venues. The Indiegogo page has a full breakdown of how funds will be allotted. Please contribute to this project at:
