Genre: Comedy
Written by Alex Kveton, Directed by John Kurzynowski

Fat Man can't live without his beef sandwiches. Unfortunately it’s those very same sandwiches that have fattened him up to the brink of combustion. His world gets turned upside down as a team of doctors, trainers, nutritionists, and one adorable Tiny Man struggle to save this fat, fat, fatty from an explosive demise – resulting in a spectacle of dancing cows, an array of high intensity cardio routines, and one huge appetite on gluttonous display.

Alex Kveton’s witty and daring new play takes a harsh look at the dangers of excessive behavior while bringing us along on an existential roller-coaster ride as one man’s struggle to survive forces him to give up what he loves most in the world – utter indulgence. Directed by Theater Reconstruction Ensemble’s John Kurzynowski, Fat Fat Fatty promises to be an evening of theatrical innovation that will leave you hungry for more!

About the Company: Theater For The New City

THEATER FOR THE NEW CITY (TNC) is a Pulitzer Prize winning community cultural center that is known for its high artistic standards and widespread community service. One of New York’s most prolific theatrical organizations, TNC produces 30-40 premieres of new American plays per year, at least 10 of which are by emerging and young playwrights. Many influential theater artists of the last quarter century have found TNC’s Resident Theater Program instrumental to their careers, among them Sam Shepard, Moises Kaufman, Richard Foreman, Charles Busch, Maria Irene Fornes, Miguel Piñero and Academy Award Winners Tim Robbins and Adrien Brody. TNC also presents plays by multi-ethnic/multi-disciplinary theater companies who have no permanent home. Among the well-known companies that have been presented by TNC are Mabou Mines, the Living Theater, Bread and Puppet Theater, the San Francisco Mime Troupe and the Ma-Yi Theater Company, which won an OBIE Award for its 1996 TNC production, FLIPZOIDS. TNC also produced the Yangtze Repertory Company’s 1997 production of BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH, which was the only play ever produced in America by Gao Xingjian before he won the 2000 Nobel Prize for Literature. TNC seeks to develop theater audiences and inspire future theater artists from the often-overlooked low-income minority communities of New York City by producing minority writers from around the world and by bringing the community into theater and theater into the community through its many free Festivals. TNC productions have won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and over 40 OBIE Awards for excellence in every theatrical discipline. TNC is also the only Theatrical Organization to have won the Mayor's Stop The Violence award.
