Organization: Repertory East Playhouse
Date: June 21, 2009
Big Summer Fun Begins at The Repertory East Playhouse
    The Repertory East Playhouse will continue the highly anticipated "81 Series" on Friday, July 10, at 8:00pm 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 7:00pm with curtain at 8:00pm.
    Fat Pig is Neil LaBute's award-winning and 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?
    Says REP Artistic Director Ovington Michael Owston, about Fat Pig. "This is an amazing and poignant piece of theatre. We are very proud to have it on our stage."
    "The most emotional engaging and unsettling of Mr LaBute's plays since BASH ... Ben Brantley, The New York Times
    "One of Neil LaBute's subtler efforts ... Demonstrates a warmth and compassion for its characters missing in many of LaBute's previous works [and] balances black humor and social commentary in ... Beautifully written, hilarious ... dissection of how societal pressures affect relationships ... Astute and up-to-the-minute relevant." — Frank Scheck, New York Post
    Fat Pig opens Friday July 10 and will run through July 25th. Show times are Friday and Saturdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 2:00pm. THIS IS A LIMITED ENGAGEMENT 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.
    Directed by Ovington Michael Owston, Fat Pig stars Shane Stevens, Joy Nash, Tyler Brooks, and Leslie Connelly.
