Fat Pig

By Neil LaBute

A handsome young professional named Tom (Christopher Johnson) utters "pretty big" to himself at a lunchtime grazing spot, commenting on its cavernous size. His stray words attract Helen (Megan Patno), the sweet-faced, plus-size librarian. Their banter, by turns awkward and ardent, blooms into the love that dare not speak its name, at least not to one's co-workers. The instinctively meddling Carter (Arya Arabshahi) spies on Tom at a "dinner thing" with Helen, and goes apoplectic with glee - and fear - upon learning she's his squeeze. Jeannie (Seren Helday), Tom's pencil-skirted ex in accounting, is even more merciless in her humiliation than Carter. She thinks Tom's 'chubby chasing' is an attack on her. Proving that in our search for beauty we have only become uglier as a whole, Fat Pig takes aim at the elephant in the room that just may be the last American taboo: our incoherent hostility toward the obese.
