New York City
Fatboy is a brutal comedy inspired by Alfred Jarry’s Ubu Roi. This satire on modern America’s insatiable appetites, from gobbling up 72 oz. steaks to small nations is presented as a live-action Punch and Judy show. In this fast-moving, shocking, profane, dead-on funhouse mirror reflection of the world today, the brutish allegory known as Fatboy stands trial for war crimes. Despite overwhelming evidence the court refuses to convict and succumbs to Fatboy’s “persuasive” tactics.
John Clancy directs.
