Content Warning

Uma has a problem — everything she eats makes her sick, but don’t worry, it’s TOTALLY FINE! From her lifelong allergies to nuts, to non life-threatening intolerances she’s picked up along the way, Uma’s spent many years telling everyone she’s fine. She can still eat your birthday cake if you pick out the nuts — you know how to use an epipen, right?! 

 

After her diagnosis with Crohn’s disease opera singer and theatre kid, Uma, is forced to confront her obsessions with chocolate and popcorn, the difficulties of explaining your allergies at dinner parties, and how to navigate the dating world without having an allergic reaction to semen (yes, really).

 

If you’ve ever struggled with your relationship to food, this is the show for you! With original pop songs and opera parodies, join Uma on a romp through denial and ultimate acceptance of her body’s allergies and intolerances, and learn how you too could become a little more tolerant.
