WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

What if the person you were dating was seriously overweight? Not fat. Not chubby. But obese. Maybe it wouldn't matter to you. And the other person might be quite comfortable with his/her size. But what about your friends? Co-workers? Family? Could your loved one's weight actually impact your relationships? Your career? You own self-esteem? These are but a few of the questions raised in Neil LaBute's fascinating and provocative comic-drama Fat Pig. In the play, Tom, a handsome young career guy, meets and starts dating Helen, a bright sexy librarian who happens to be plus-sized - and then some. As Tom reluctantly begins to fall for Helen, his co-workers tease him mercilessly about his new relationship, forcing him to come to terms with his own preconceptions about the importance of beauty and conventional good looks. Student rush tickets are available with a valid college ID, at the box office only, one hour before curtain, based on availability.
