a critique of societies adherence to ideals of beauty: Neil LaBute’s comedy

A modern and funny play about love between an average guy and a plus-sized woman, complicated by a world in which superficial judgments based on ones size and shape are the norm.

The Valencia College Theater is proud to present Neil LaBute’s hilariously biting comedy “Fat Pig,” on June 6, and running through June 16. The Friday, June 14th performance offers a bonus talk-back with cast and director after the production.

The play depicts the budding romance between Tom, an upwardly mobile corporate type, and Helen, a plus-sized librarian. LaBute’s comedy will critiques societies adherence to Hollywood ideals of beauty, and boldly questions the ability to change what we dislike about ourselves.

All performances will be in the Valencia College Black Box Theater, located on Valencia’s East Campus in Building 3. Curtain times will be7:30 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays. Sunday performances will begin at 2 p.m.

Valencia College Theater presents this contemporary work by Neil LaBute with a production direction by John DiDonna, set design by Greg Loftus, lighting design by Kristin Abel and costume design by Kayleigh Raymondo. The cast includes Chris Markcity, Olivia Richardson, Andrew Romano and Jessica Meguiar.

General admission tickets cost $12. Senior citizens, Valencia faculty, staff and students may purchase tickets for $10. Tickets can be purchased online at www.valenciacollege.edu/arts or by CLICKING here.
