Neil LaBute's razor-sharp and poignant comedy FAT PIG takes a comical and politically incorrect look at our obsession with appearance. When Tom falls in love with plus-sized Helen he is ecstatic, yet there's no way he can tell his fat-phobic colleagues about their romance.
“Emotionally engaging and unsettling” -New York Times
Winner of the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Play
