What's playing

FAT PIG by Neil LaBute premiered on 3 September, 2015


How many insults can you hear before you stand up for the woman you love? Tom, a young corporate executive, meets Helen, an intelligent, funny, but over-weight librarian. They date and fall in love, but Helen’s plus-size causes trouble for Tom back in his office. His best friend and colleague, Carter, treats the relationship as a ridiculous joke and tries to end it, believing that Tom and other attractive people should “run with their own kind.” Meanwhile Jeannie, whom Tom has dated occasionally, treats his new interest in the fat girl as a personal insult. Will Tom have the courage, in spite of social pressure, to continue seeing Helen?
