Pig Graces Local Stage

REP comedy to question societal stereotypes

The Japanese call it kaizen, the struggle for constant improvement; an admirable philosophy. But how do we define improvement? Can the struggle toward perfection leave us more broken? The Repertory East Playhouse (REP) will explore this theme with its first offering of the summer, Fat Pig, Neil LaBute’s biting comedy about romance in a society of appearance.

 

Continuing the REP’s popular “81 Series,” Fat Pig follows Tom, who is just starting his career when he finds himself reluctantly falling in love with the bright, sexy, plus-sized Helen. When he must explain their relationship to his shallow colleagues, he comes to grips with his own preconceptions and prejudices. LaBute explores the fallout of society’s relentless pursuit of unattainable ideals and the human capacity for change, in what Frank Scheck of The New York Post calls a perfect balance of “black humor and social commentary.”

 

The “81 Series,” named for the theatre’s seating capacity, seeks to provide audiences a unique and provocative theatre experience. A step outside the ordinary “Main Stage” offerings, these productions run for limited engagements and usually deal with mature subject matter. Playgoers are invited to ‘Be a Part of The 81′ at the Opening Night Wine Reception at 7:00pm with curtain at 8:00pm.

 

Fat Pig is intended for mature audiences and runs July 10 through July 25th. Show times are Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 2:00pm. Tickets can be reserved online at www.repeastplayhouse.org, or by calling 661-288-0000. The REP is located at 24266 Main Street Newhall, CA. 91321.
