Neil LaBute’s comedy Fat Pig is a tale of love in a judgemental society.

When Tom first meets Helen there is an instant connection, but it is not exactly love at first sight… Helen is a bright, funny, sexy young woman who happens to be plus-sized – and then some – and it is only so long before the insults start to fly from Tom’s office buddies.

Transferred from Trafalgar Studios, the original cast of Fat Pig – Kris Marshall, Robert Webb, Joanna Page and Ella Smith – has now been replaced by Kevin Bishop, Nicholas Burns, Kelly Brook and Katie Kerr.

Bishop starred in his own Channel 4 comedy show The Kevin Bishop Show, along with Channel 4 comedy sketch shows Dogface, Spoons and Star Stories. He has also appeared in the BBC’s Love Soup, Casualty, My Family and Hotel Babylon.

Burns has previously appeared on the London stage in The Madness Of George Dubya and The Libertine. He is best known for playing the title role in Nathan Barley and for his appearances in Benidorm.

Brook makes her West End debut in Fat Pig. The actress, model and presenter, who once came top of FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women In The World poll, is currently best known for competing in the 2007 series of Strictly Come Dancing. Her television acting credits include Hotel Babylon and Smallville.

Kerr previously appeared in the successful Menier Chocolate Factory production of Little Shop Of Horrors that transferred to the West End.

Playwright LaBute has previously achieved success in London with This Is How It Goes, Bash, Some Girl(s) and The Shape Of Things.
