The title of Dallas-area resident’s Jennifer Porter Kennard’s play, A Big Girl’s Guide To Love, wouldn’t have exactly been an appealing name had her production been a plain, old how-to book. Come on, do most of us, regardless of body mass, really need any help dealing with bad dates, nosy friends and annoying family members meddling in our personal lives? Of course, this is a play and not a book with a ton of words and few pictures, so it’s all kinds of fun to watch Sloane Davis, a well-rounded young woman with a little extra meat on her bones, navigate the already choppy waters of finding the love we all have searched for at one time or another. The show runs weekends from May 18–27 at the Pantagleize Theater, 1400 Henderson St., Building No. 3, in Fort Worth. Shows are at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 3 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets are $15 for matinees and $20 for evening performances. Visit dvaproductions.org/mainstage.html or call 817-303-3052 for tickets and information.
