Red Ryder Productions

“The most legitimately provocative and polarizing playwright at work today.” –New York Magazine


Tom meets Helen and falls for her pretty face and great laugh. Helen is ‘plus-sized’. ‘Big-boned.’ ‘Jolly.’ Tom’s colleagues don’t get it. He’s a catch and you run with your own kind. It’s one of the laws of nature.

Beast. Pig. Fat bitch. At what point do you take a stand?

Beautifully sweet, wickedly funny, and heart-breakingly cruel, Neil LaBute’s award-winning Fat Pig looks at our slavish addiction to ‘ideals’ of beauty and how being a hero is a tough gig.

Red Ryder Productions (Dealer’s Choice, The Mozart Faction) returns with a play about need: our need for truth; our need to be liked; and the crazy things that happen when these collide.

Very rare is the dude who stands up for the shit he believes in.
