I Wanna F#!*ing Tear You Apart

Rivendell Theatre
5775 N. Ridge Avenue Chicago

Samantha and Leo are a team -- best friends and roommates, fat girl and gay guy against the world -- until a new friend upends their cozy co-dependent diet of mutual self-loathing and Grey's Anatomy marathons. An ode to the complications of friendship in its many messed-up forms, with a special nod to a kind of love that sometimes looks a lot like rage. Produced first at D.C.'s Studio Theatre, I Wanna F#!&ing Tear You Apart challenges assumptions around niceness, beauty, and mainstream acceptance as it upends traditional narratives about fat women -- Gould herself identifies openly as such -- by putting a fat woman at its center. "I'm not chubby or big-boned," says Gould. "I'm fat. That's who I am". Directed by Jessica Fisch, director of Rivendell's highly successful world premiere production of The Firebirds Take the Field, Gould's play is a wild ride with unforgettable characters that asks probing questions about friendships, fatness, bigotry, ambition, and the cost of living in a world that finds you unacceptable in some way.
