"The Thin Line" uses live theatre to begin the conversation about eating disorders and reduce the stigma surrounding this mental illness. It illustrates the pain of one girl's struggle and her loved ones' resolve to understand and to help. Eating Disorder Awareness Week

The program features four characters with distinct voices, all played by a professional actor. The play reveals the devastating impact eating disorders have on both the individual struggling as well as those around them.

Members of the Student Counseling Services eating disorder treatment team will discuss how to access services at Iowa State and lead a Q&A immediately following the 30-minute play.
