BIG Sister

FEB 19–29, 2020 | Vancity Culture Lab


About the Show

A true story—depending on who you ask. A one-woman comedy about the relationship between two sisters and what happens when one of them changes. The real life experience of sister/actor Naomi’s 70-pound weight loss, written through the perspective of younger sibling/writer Deborah. BIG Sister explores a world of evil siblings, fat shaming, and unlikely collaboration.
