WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Fat Pig is Neil LaBute's award-winning and bitingly funny romance about love in the modern age of body image and peer pressure. Tom is a young career guy who hits it off with Helen, a bright, sexy woman who happens to be plus-sized - and then some. As he reluctantly finds himself falling in love with Helen, Tom's colleagues are brutally cruel in their assessment of his new mate. LaBute probes our carb-counting, extreme makeover nation by asking tough questions. How much has our relentless pursuit of beauty turned us into an uglier species? "One of the best shows of 2006!" -Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago Reader, TimeOut, Copley News Service "Critics' Pick! Striking and bold, it's one of Neil LaBute's best plays. This is a gripping show that should be a bit hit for Profiles!" -Chris Jones, CHICAGO TRIBUNE "Highly Recommended! A splendidly acted, pitch-perfect Chicago Premiere at Profiles Theatre!" -Hedy Weiss, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES "Highly Recommended! Darrell W. Cox and Deborah Hearst are superb. Critic's Choice!" -Jack Helbig, CHICAGO READER "Critic's Pick! One of the year's most unsettlingly funny, viscerally wrenching plays. Don't Miss!" -Christopher Piatt, TIME OUT CHICAGO "***1/2! Profiles Theatre handles Neil LaBute's darkly funny play beautifully!" -Barbara Vitello, DAILY HERALD "LaBute's punchy and honest dialogue is sparked by his keen ear for dead-on realistic speech. Profiles' production is beautifully directed and perfectly cast!" -Jonathan Abarbanel, WBEZ and WINDY CITY TIMES "Profiles, under Joe Jahraus' exceptionally tight and confident direction, makes its audiences face tough truths. FAT PIG should be running for quite a while!" -John Olson, TALKIN' BROADWAY
