Margaret Atwood's internationally-renowned first novel has been brilliantly adapted for stage by playwright Dave Carley. With wit, affection and dollops of irony, The Edible Woman traces the journey of Marian, a young woman who has embraced the consumer society. Marian has a good job, a handsome lawyer-fiancé, and a conventionally bright future. But slowly Marian's consumer world starts slipping out of focus, as she begins instead to identify with the things consumed. Compounding Marian's confusion is her newly-pregnant roommate, her incensed landlady, and that strange young man she just kissed at the laundromat?
