Sugar Baby is going to the Edinburgh Fringe throughout August. The one-woman show is an hour-long voyage into the dark soul of the food industry and was inspired by my novel Food Fight. A mother-daughter relationship is at the heart of the story about sugars, addiction and a food giant gone rogue. This time the story is told by Mimi, a vegan activist.
Ahead of the Edinburgh performances at the Annexe Theatre (Paradise Green in the Vault: Annexe) from August 4 to 27, Sugar Baby previewed in London and Paris to full houses.
We were thrilled with the feedback from spectators who described the show as “riveting” and “brilliant”. Simon O’Hagan, from the Radio Times, tweeted: “Remember the name Holly Rose Clegg, compelling and astonishingly versatile in Anne Penketh’s dark comedy Sugar Baby.”

This is British actress Holly-Rose Clegg, the star of Sugar Baby in which she plays multiple roles.
Katie Haigh is directing. All three of us are based in Paris. Holly-Rose trained in Commedia dell’arte before taking stage and TV roles in France – including playing in an episode of the crime drama Spiral (Engrenages). She’s performing in Molière’s farce, Le Médecin Malgré Lui, in Paris. Katie is an actress and voiceover artist who starred in the acclaimed musical comedy, La Sorcière Ephémère, which played at the Avignon festival and on tour round France. You may have heard her as the voice of Nespresso…
