Who decides what is beautiful—or rather, who is beautiful' What is beauty, after all' Neil LaBute, one of America’s hottest and most controversial young playwrights, takes on these beguiling questions in two of his most celebrated plays—Fat Pig and reasons to be pretty. MICA’s student theater company, Rivals of the West, will present both of these critically acclaimed and provocative plays over two weekends this spring. Don’t miss the drama that beauty—or its absence—stirs.
Fat Pig: Thursday, April 5; Saturday, April 7; Friday, April 13; and Sunday, April 15, 8 pm
Fat Pig is the clever but touching story of a stereotypical young professional named Tom who falls in love with a confident, plus-sized librarian named Helen. The play explores how society treats a romance between the two.
Reasons To Be Pretty: Friday, April 6; Sunday, April 8; Thursday, April 12; and Saturday, April 14, 8 pm
In reasons to be pretty, a cast of four young working class friends and lovers become increasingly dissatisfied with their dead-end lives—and each other.
