WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

A modern descendant of Alfred Jarry's famous Ubu Roi, the tyrannical Fatboy eats everything in sight, until the world he consumes is bereft of both justice and pancakes. Meanwhile his wife, Fudgie, chases carnal satisfaction, serving as a burlesque Judy to Fatboy's Punch. For anyone who has ever felt a bit marginalized by the current state of civilization, Fatboy is your kind of satire . The winner of a 2004 Edinburgh Fringe First award, this comically cautionary work from John Clancy examines the destructive forces of blind greed and mindless consumption with a crass comedic panache and questions how a charismatic yet vulgar egomaniac can rise from obscurity to rule an apathetic society.
