This is a story of two fat queer housemates and the fat joy they found in friendship. Itโ€™s a story of chubby chasers and Adele, of jiggling bellies and butter churning, of hookups in UFOs and cock-sucking in Sunbury. Itโ€™s a story about what happens when fat people are happy and not the elephant in the room.

Blending verbatim text, devised theatre, and a mukbang, Full Cream imagines a stage where fat people belong. Itโ€™s a little slice of utopia served with a side of clotted cream. Youโ€™re invited to join the fun, the fiesta, and the feed, and live out your big fat fantasy.

Hold onto your love handles: This is a show for all those who keep track of whoโ€™s the fattest in the room, and for all those who are the fattest in the room.

Full Cream is an award-winning new play about fat pride, kinship, and liberation that I created with my housemate, Emily Keagan, as well as Jonathan Graffam-O'Meara & Georgie Wolfe. We've taken the show to Melbourne Fringe, Geelong Arts Centre, Bendigo Pride, Radically Soft, A Plus Market, Perth Fringe, and are still going strong. From the creation of this work, we've created a new theatre company dedicated to creating a fat theatrical canon.

Full Cream was developed with the support of Monash Uni Student Theatre, Monash Performing Arts Centres, Monash Student Association, and the Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music and Performance

The team behind it, Em Keagan (she/her), Ryan Hamilton (he/they), Georgie Wolfe (she/her), & Jonathan Graffam-Oโ€™Meara (he/him), have created a work that combines verbatim text, devised theatre, voice over recordings and a mukbang to tell the story of two fat housemates navigating dating, identity and living their best lives in their 20s. The team has done an amazing job at inviting audiences into t
Review for Full Cream by Amelia Chisholm | FRINGE WORLD Festival - 19 Jan to 18 Feb 2024
Naarm-based artists Em Keagan (she/her) and Ryan Hamilton (he/they) welcome us into their living room, doubling as a dancefloor, to bask in a joyful tale of friendship, fun and fat pride. Full to the brim! Full Cream features an enthralling burlesque duet, a satirical memorial service for theโ€ฆ
