Fat Pig

Written by: Neil LaBute

Directed by: Michael Scholar Jr.

Starring: Kathryn Kirkpatrick,  Aaron Craven, Jennifer Mawhinney and Lawrence Haegert

Presented by: Mitch & Murray Equity Co Op

Cow. Slob. Pig. How many insults can you hear before you have to stand up and defend the woman you love? Tom faces just that question when he falls for Helen, a bright, funny, sexy young woman who happens to be plus sized-and then some. Forced to explain his new relationship to his shallow (although shockingly funny) friends, finally he comes to terms with his own preconceptions of the importance of conventional good looks. Neil LaBute’s sharply drawn play not only critiques our slavish adherence to Hollywood ideals of beauty but boldly questions our own ability to change what we dislike about ourselves. This is a smart, telling drama with comic elements.
