It was a great moment she thought.
After months of work, rehearsal, worry and anxiety it was finally over.
In her dressing room away from the accolades she received she could relax and gather her thoughts.
She had laboured with a crew and cast who were sceptical at first as to wether or not the play would work but as she explained to them from day one she had a vision of the play and the impact it would make upon an audience.
A play she had painstakingly written over several years detailing her struggle with an eating disorder that at one point threatened her not only her health but also her life.
Tonight it had all come to fruition.
The audience stood, clapped and cheered as she took her bows along with her fellow performers. She knew she had not done this alone and gracefully acknowledged their invaluable contribution.
Now to gather herself, change and enjoy a few drinks with her fellow cast and crew.
