Neil LaBute's Comedy 'Fat Pig' is at the Off Center

This month, Theatre en Bloc is presenting Neil LaBute’s play “Fat Pig” at the Off Center. It’s a unique love story; one that takes a hard look at our cultural attitudes toward weight and beauty. The comedy centers around young professional Tom, who meets and falls in love with Helen, the rare ingenue role written for a plus-sized actress. As written by LaBute, the play makes the audience laugh and then forces them to question why they’re laughing; it’s a romantic comedy that asks its audience to think about the issue at hand.

The four-person play stars Zenia Vaughan, Ryan Hamilton, Jenny Lavery, and Charles Stites and is directed by  Derek Kolluri.   

Fat Pig At The Off Center, 2211 Hidalgo Street October  3rd – 20th Thursdays – Sundays at 8:00 pm
