BLACK STRIPE THEATER is BACK!
From the same people who, over the last four years have brought you -Harold Pinter’s The Dumb Waiter, Victoria Station, The Hothouse & The Homecoming; David Mamet’s Glengarry Glenross; Manuel Puig’s Kiss of the Spiderwoman; John Patrick Shanley’s Doubt & Caryl Churchill’s A Number – we’re now proud to announce our eighth production.
===== PERFORMANCE: BST “Fat Pig” 7/1-3 =====
Black Stripe Theater presents Neil LaBute’s Fat Pig directed by Rachel Walzer, and featuring Nerida Rand, Erick Ferman, David Mashiko and Makiko Mikami. The play opens with a situation that we are all familiar with: a man and woman meet in restaurant, they get chatting, and he asks her out. And why not, she’s delightful, bright, funny, sexy, unique… and Plus Size.
As our protagonist Tom dates Helen, we see his struggle between the love for this genuinely wonderful woman and his shame at dating someone who his friends can only see as a “fat pig”. Fat Pig is a dazzling, hilarious, painful, sexy, relevant, disturbing play which will make audiences laugh, squirm and gasp.
