The play, which is directed by the playwright, is described as "a dark comedy of sibling rivalry" that "escalates into a psychological thriller, bursting with savage conflict." On a dark and stormy night, all Bobby thought he was doing was helping his sister Betty clear out her cottage in the forest. But in this cabin of lies nothing is as it seems and the truth refuses to be packed away. What is she hiding? Does he really want to find out?
LaBute was recently represented Off-Broadway by The Break of Noon, playing at the Lucille Lortel.

Fat Pig will make its Broadway premiere this spring.
Fox, who plays Bobby, jointly won the 2005 SAG Ensemble Award, and was also nominated for the Golden Globe and Emmy for Outstanding Leading Man in a Drama Series for his work on "Lost." His other television work includes the Golden Globe award-winning series "Party of Five." For film, his credits include "Speed Racer," "Vantage Point," "Smokin' Aces" and "We are Marshall."
