About this show

The Fat Lady Sings is the wild, truthful play that we have all been waiting for. It exposes the rotting old belief systems and moth-eaten myths that have brought 2019 America to its knees. A white authoritarian evangelical family — the father eerily like today's occupant of the White House — lives out its excruciating and abusive confusion of real and virtual on an ancient, dreamlike, falling-apart ship of false notions. Filled with rage, despair, and denial — and exploited by politicians, preachers, and commercial corporations — the family careens toward catastrophe but also, amazingly, toward cathartic change.
