About the show

"Rinse, Repeat" is a new play that conveys the painful truth about confronting a disorder that is often met with denial from both the patient and the people that love them. More…

Rachel hasn’t been home in four months. After fighting for her life at Renley, a trial weekend has been agreed upon. At first, Rachel couldn’t be happier to be reunited with her family. But what happens when the people you love most, the ones you believe want the best for you, are the ones causing the most damage without even knowing it? Where do you go when the place you feel you most belong might be the place that almost killed you in the first place? "Rinse, Repeat" sharply conveys the painful truth about a woman's fight for her life in the face of an eating disorder.

ADVISORIES: This play contains nudity. Recommended for ages 15 and up.
