Abby explores why certain roles in theatre are coded as fat and often get played by fat actors even though there's no mention of size in the script. Then she is joined by Gianluca Russo, a fashion journalist and author of the upcoming book The Power of Plus. Abby and Gianluca talk about body positivity, breaking into journalism, Ashley Graham, Martha from High School Musical, the recent explosion of fat representation in fashion, and how theatre can follow suit.
