Bernie Fagan has anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder. Sure, why have one when you can have them all?  Sweet About Me is a one woman show about addiction. Set in a treatment centre over the course of a month, we get to meet all the clients, hear their stories and witness their recovery, or relapse. It explores alcohol, heroin and cocaine addiction through the eyes of the central character, 18 year old Bernadette Fagan who has an eating disorder, a controlling mother and a body image to die for.  But food seems so trivial in comparison to the people with real problems like shooting heroin? Or does it?  

Sweet About Me looks at how society views and ranks addiction. It aims to dispel myths and open our hearts to the toughest characters that we might judge in an every-day encounter, proving that no matter what walk of life you come from, addiction never discriminates.

The script is sharp and laugh out loud funny” ITM on Sheerin’s play ‘Waiting for Ikea’
