Fat Men In Skirts

"It’s so gleefully “out there” you can’t look away."--Jay Lustig, njarts.net
Family life comes unhinged in this ever-hilarious, certifiably insane, and at times poignant, comedy. After 11 year-old Bishop and his mother, Phyllis, are stranded on a desert island after a plane crash, sanity unravels and passions fly. Meanwhile, at home, dad/husband Howard is having an affair with a giddy young actress, Pam. The twists, the turns, the horror, and the ludicrous converge as the four characters attempt to gain the audience’s sympathy - even at each other’s expense.
Featuring: Shari Cohen, Michael Gardiner, Arthur Gregory Pugh, and Ilana Schimmel. Directed by Matt Okin.
