Fat Pig: A Comedy by Mad Hats Theatre

Fat Pig: A Comedy by Mad Hats Theatre

Comedy | English | Age 14+

Alliance Francaise: Bengaluru | 300

Directed by: Puneet Gupta 

A smart adman runs into a vibrant librarian at a cafe for lunch. She is funny and lively, and they instantly connect. Serendipity! This chance encounter leads to dates, and more dates and they soon fall for each other. Head-over-heels! The only problem is that she is plus sized. Very! And for reasons he is not fully sure about, he tries to keep this affair a secret from his fervently curious friends & colleagues. Until the truth spills out and the narrative of their love story becomes messy. Very messy!

Told in an exceptionally witty style, this love story of enormous proportions is served with a vicious edge of bittersweet truths. You'll find yourself laughing out aloud one moment, and feel a bit guilty for laughing the very next. Laced with keen observations of human behavior, this play subtly tackles deeper issues of body shaming, bullying and prejudices with great aplomb.

Accolades For "Fat Pig":

  1. Winner of the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Play in 2005
  2. Nominated for Laurence Olivier Awards for Best New Comedy in 2005

Reviews Of "Fat Pig"

  1. (New York Theatre) Fat Pig reveals Neil LaBute’s strengths (cruel wit) and weaknesses (the tender bits).
  2. (New York Times) The built-in self-destruction device for Mr. LaBute's lovers is the unavoidable problem that one of them is a man.
  3. (Curtain Up) In LaBute's play, the laughs are not just for entertainment but a means for jogging us into thinking more deeply about the attitude that equates super-thin, athletic and youthful looks with success -- an obsession that has made multi-millionaires out of diet doctors and surgeons doing plastic surgery and procedures like stomach stapling.
  4. (Variety) Has LaBute ever loved and understood a character more than Helen? She urges her conflicted lover, “Just be clear and honest.” It’s advice that her author has unfailingly followed.
