Eschewing the fat: strong production but Neil LaBute below his best : a review
Hadley, Bree J. (2010) Eschewing the fat: strong production but Neil LaBute below his best : a review. The Australian, 7(Jun).
AWARD-WINNING American play and screen writer Neil LaBute is known for producing character-driven dramas that concentrate on the darker side of human nature and desire.
In Fat Pig, LaBute picks up on a familiar theme: the way a perverse social preference for physical perfection affects human relationships.
It is a topic LaBute has tackled before in The Shape of Things, a compelling play in which a beautiful young woman's efforts to help her new boyfriend pursue a program of self-improvement are eventually revealed to be part of a bizarre human experiment for her master-of-fine-arts degree.
