"Fat Pig" is Neil LaBute's bitingly funny romance about love in the modern age of body image and peer pressure.

 
The Repertory East Playhouse will continue its "81 Series" on Friday, July 10, at 8 p.m., with the critically-acclaimed comedy, "Fat Pig," by Neil LaBute - sponsored by Ed and Dana Hill of Geotechnologies Inc. Be a part of the 81 at the opening night wine reception at 7 p.m.

"Fat Pig" is LaBute's bitingly funny romance about love in the modern age of body image and peer pressure. Tom is a young career guy who hits it off with Helen, a bright, sexy woman who happens to be plus-sized - and then some. As he reluctantly finds himself falling in love with Helen, Tom's colleagues are brutally cruel in their assessment of his new mate. LaBute probes our carb-counting, extreme makeover nation by asking tough questions. How much has our relentless pursuit of beauty turned us into an uglier species?

"This is an amazing and poignant piece of theatre. We are very proud to have it on our stage," said REP Artistic Director Ovington Michael Owston.

"Fat Pig" will run through July 25. Show times are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. This is a limited performance. This show contains adult language and adult situations and is intended for mature audiences only. For tickets, purchase online at www.repeastplayhouse.org or call (661) 288-0000. The REP is located at 24266 Main Street Newhall, CA, 91321
The REP will host post show discussions immediately following each Sunday performance. Join the cast and crew for an intimate discussion about the process of creating live theatre.
