THE STORY: During the war Joe Keller and Steve Deever ran a machine shop which made airplane parts. Deever was sent to prison because the firm turned out defective parts, causing the deaths of many men. Keller went free and made a lot of money. The twin shadows of this catastrophe and the fact that the young Keller son was reported missing during the war dominate the action. The love affair of Chris Keller and Ann Deever, the bitterness of George Deever returned from the war to find his father in prison and his father's partner free, are all set in a structure of almost unbearable power. The climax showing the reaction of a son to his guilty father is fitting conclusion to a play electrifying in its intensity.

Kate Keller (Mother), playing age late 50s: Joe’s wife. Desperately clinging to the idea that her son Larry (MIA for 3 years) is alive. Seeks to protect the secret of Joe’s guilt.
Chris Keller, their son, playing age 32: The Keller’s idealistic, educated son. Believes wholly in his father’s innocence and has accepted his brother to be dead. In love with Ann.
Ann Deever, playing age 26: Steve’s daughter who secretly knows for certain Larry is dead. Wants to marry Chris.
George Deever, her brother, playing age 32: Ann’s protective older brother. Doubts Joe’s innocence.
Dr Jim Bayliss, playing age late 30s: Neighbor who dreams of giving up his medical career to pursue research.
Sue Bayliss, playing age late 30s: Jim’s wife. Resents Chris for his idealistic influences on Jim.
Frank Lubey, playing age 32: Easy going neighbor interested in astrology.
Lydia Lubey, playing age 27: Frank’s wife and mother of three. A bit flakey with a good heart.
Bert, a boy, playing age 10: Neighborhood kid. Note: a parent/responsible adult must remain in attendance for all rehearsals for which the actor is called.

Fat Pig by Neil Labute
Helen: Overweight librarian comfortable in her own skin. Not self-conscious about her weight or her eating habits and embraces them. Intelligent and not easily manipulated. (20-40)
Fat Pig centers on Tom, a typical young professional who becomes involved in a relationship with a plus-sized librarian, Helen.

The play follows the journey of their relationship through a poignant, and eye opening production that hits on the topics of outside influence on a person's every decision.
