Peckham Fringe: Best Fit

3rd & 4th May

About the show

Three women meet at a bespoke African tailoring shop and, in the midst of piecing together colourful fabrics, unpack their very different lives.

Sade visits Gladys’ boutique to get a dress sewn for a traditional Ghanaian wedding. Whilst keeping Gladys company as she sews dresses, Sade unexpectedly runs into an old acquaintance, Violet. While Sade tries to keep up with the Joneses, Violet just wants to deliver her mail round, and Gladys rushes to finish her orders, an unlikely friendship forms.

Through heated debates, wardrobe mishaps and affirmations, Best Fit candidly explores beauty standards and the pressure to fit in.

Age Guidance: 14+

Content Warning: The play follows three women’s perceptions of beauty with the performance including references to sensitive themes including body image, bullying, harassment, racism and colourism.
