More About FSU's Department of Theatre and Dance Presents "Fat Pig"

The Department of Theatre and Dance at Frostburg State University will wrap up its 2018-19 season with Neil LaBute’s play “Fat Pig” on Friday and Saturday, May 3 and 4, and Thursday through Saturday, May 9 to 11, at 7:30 p.m., with a matinee on May 4 at 2 p.m. Directed by Mairzy Yost-Rushton, a professor in the department, the performances will take place in the F. Perry Smith Studio Theatre of FSU’s Woodward D. Pealer Performing Arts Center.

“Fat Pig” is the story of Tom, a stereotypical professional businessman in a large city, who falls for a very plus-sized librarian named Helen. They say love is blind, and for Tom, Helen is easy to love. She’s funny, she’s smart and she’s beautiful. But to his friends, she’s just fat. How could anyone love someone like her? Indeed, she is a plus-sized woman, but that shouldn’t matter, right? Tom finds himself struggling to explain his love to his friends and is increasingly worn down by the jokes and criticism. Can love last when the world can only see us from the outside?
