MCC Theater has announced plans for a one-night benefit reading of Neil LaBute's Fat Pig to be held on March 5 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. LaBute will also direct the reading.

This benefit reading will be led by Chrissy Metz, a recent Golden Globe nominee for her role on NBC's This Is Us. Additional casting will be announced at a later date.

The play is described as follows: "Cow. Slob. Pig. How many insults can you hear before you 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 also happens to be plus-sized."

MCC previously presented the world premiere production of Fat Pig during the 2004-05 season. In celebration of its 30th anniversary season the company looks forward to bringing the play back with a new ending.
