THE BREAK-UP DIET

WINNER of the 2019 ADAMS AWARD FOR BEST NEW MUSICAL SCRIPT

"It belongs with Nora Ephron's Heartburn as a great work of art about splitting up." -- NOW Magazine

"Like a really good extended Moth Radio Hour story backed by your favourite indie bar band." -- Toronto Star (Top Shows to See at Fringe TO)

"This is not musical theatre like you would expect. It’s raw and alternative. It sugar coats nothing and it does not tidy itself up for a happy ending." -- Mooney On Theatre

--------------------------------------------------------------

In 2014 Tamara Williamson wrote a book about a devastating break up. She didn't think it was very good so she made it into an audio book. On a whim she asked her old band Mrs. Torrance if they would like to record some of the rather angry songs, and they got together in 2015 and recorded 6 songs. In 2016 she started playing it to her friends who started saying things like."Tonight we're going to listen to The Break-Up Diet instead of watching Netflicks. So she made it into a live show. This all took a few more years....in 2018 she played a few shows to see if it was any good and people seemed to love it. So she took a knife to the book and made a musical script and entered a competition at the Fringe Festival in Toronto and amazingly won. Which was a huge honour! The Break-Up Diet did a

So this year 2019.. she is playing the show live and releasing an EP with Mrs.Torrance who haven't released anything in 20 years. She also asked an amazing young talented songwriter Sarah Fazackerley to join the team. It's surely one of the most amazing projects that Tamara has embarked on and has already brought her so much happiness. It has gathered so many good people together and allowed her the opportunity to work with her best friends Steve and Chris from Mrs. Torrance.

“This is life transformed into devastating art,” says Author Noah Richler “(Williamson’s) inimitable, fiery style threatens to light up the room in a rhapsodic moment of beautiful, lyric revenge." Punctuated by raw guttural songs written by Williamson at the time of the events portrayed, the music is driving alternative rock performed by Tamara and her band, Mrs. Torrance.

Mrs. Torrance was an established presence on the independent Queen West music scene throughout the 1990s, opening for Oasis and signing to a major label just before Napster exploded the business model of the music industry, forcing each member to go their own separate ways. Mrs. Torrance has now reunited, adding singer-songwriter & multi-instrumentalist Sarah Fazackerley to the mix, to provide a not-to-be-missed, musical soundtrack for the emotionally devastating, and ultimately cathartic, story of ​The Break-Up Diet​.
