Fat Pig

A Drama by Neil LeBute
Directed by Yaya Smith

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, Tom comes to terms with his own preconceptions of the importance of conventional good looks. This 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.
