WINDHAM THEATRE GUILD INTRODUCES FRACTURED THEATRE@WTG
Auditions for Fat Pig by Neil Lebute
Tuesday & Thursday, January 2 & 4, 2018 at 7pm
Windham Middle School, Quarry Street, Willimantic
Windham Theatre Guild is very excited to launch a new series of plays under the name of Fractured Theatre @ WTG. This series will feature well-written plays and musicals that for one reason or another don’t fit into the Main Stage Season. The productions will be small and simple to start and will offer WTG performers and audience members new and exciting opportunities. The first play will be Fat Pig by Neil LeBute with performances on March 2, 3, & 4, 2018.
Cow.Slob.Pig. How many insults can you hear before you have to stand up and defend the woman you love? Tom faces just that question when he falls for Helen, a bright, funny, sexy young woman who happens to be plus-sized – and then some. Forced to explain his new relationship to his shallow (although shockingly funny) friends, he finally comes to terms with his own preconceptions of the importance of conventional good looks. Neil LaBute’s sharply drawn play not only critiques our slavish adherence to Hollywood ideals of beauty but also boldly questions our own ability to change what we dislike about ourselves.”
Director: Jim York
Needed: 2 men and 2 women in their 20’s and 30’s (one plus size woman).
