The College of Southern Maryland’s Theatre Company presents its cast for the Cause Theatre production of Linda Daugherty’s, “EAT (It’s Not About Food),” a play that dramatizes the dangerous and baffling world of eating disorders in girls and boys.

The play explores causes and warning signs, taking a hard look at the influences of society and the media and tells individual stories of young people struggling with this epidemic and too often tragic problem.
