Stage Talk: Fat Pig

The lead actress in Neil LaBute’s Fat Pig, Jessic Pervier stops by the KSKA studios today. Pervier plays Helen, an overweight woman who meets and falls for corporate employee Tom. This thought provoking play examines body image, the true nature of beauty, love and our inability to stand up for what we believe. Presented by the student run UAA Theatre Club, “Theatre on the Rocks,” Fat Pig is playing at the UAA Fine Arts Building tonight through this weekend.
