Fat Men in Skirts

By Nicky Silver

Directed by Monty Marsh

Fat Men in Skirts is an unconventional love story to say the least. This eccentric and darkly funny comedy explores human fragility under the most extreme conditions. Often compared to Durang in style, Silver juxtaposes the humorous and horrendous to create this bizarre, riveting, and hilariously macabre journey including a plane crash, two lone survivors, cannibalism, incest, and a re-entry into normal society.

Shrill, shocking and shockingly funny, Fat Men in Skirts makes for disturbing and exhilarating theatrical entertainment-- what more could you ask for from a night of dark comedy?
