Meet the team behind Full Cream

Full Cream began in the midst of Narrm's 6th lockdown when Em & Ryan started having frank conversations about what it's like being fat. From those discussions, the idea of telling stories about fat kinship on stage began to take shape. 

Full Cream is Em Keagan, Ryan Hamilton, Georgie Wolfe, & Jonathan Graffam-O'Meara. We're a theatre company, but we also make cool apparel for fat people (and yes, skinny people too).
