Too Big For Her Britches - One Woman Musical Show

Too Big For Her Britches

A one woman musical journey about self love and breaking generational abuse.

Told through the eyes of the main character, Luna, it’s a battle between her Inner Shame and Inner Warrioress to step into her big britches and stop trying to make herself smaller to be loved. After a barrage of text messages from her mother, and almost being wiped out by a transport truck, Luna finds herself questioning everything about her life and how she got there.

Journey through her life of heartbreak, bullying, eating disorders, mental health, and coming out of the darkness of generational trauma to finding her light.

25 characters, 7 original songs. It’s truth and triumph for anyone who has ever felt lost, unimportant, or disregarded.

Content note: Potentially disturbing material that includes self harm, suicide, and a few F bombs.

Live Reading Rave Reviews

  • Too Big For Her Britches" is a MUST see show! If you can only choose one show this year, it MUST be this one. I couldn’t stop thinking about it for days. Lisa had me mesmerized from the minute the show started until the ending. It touched me in many ways. It has depth – it’s raw, bold and tender. I cried, I laughed, and I cheered. My only wish was that the show was even longer as it’s that good. The message is powerful, needs to be heard and life changing. The music is contagious, and you will want it on your go-to play list. It’s one play that I will see multiple times and can’t wait for its Broadway debut!
