About this show

Fat Pig,the second play in Neil LaBute's trilogy that began with The Shape of Things, explores body consciousness in contemporary America. Conventionally good-looking Tom falls for Helen, a bright, funny, sexy woman, who happens to be plus-sized. Forced to explain his new relationship to his perplexed friends, Tom must come to terms with his own preconceived notions of love and attraction. Alternately funny and poignant, Fat Pig not only critiques our adherence to Hollywood's standards of beauty, but questions our ability to change what we dislike about ourselves.
