When Tom begins dating Helen, a confident plus-sized woman, he faces the taunts and judgment of his peers. In Helen, we finally see an operatic character, written specifically for a fat performer, telling of an experience that is all too common.
Adapted from the award-winning 2004 play by iconic American playwright Neil LaBute, this black comedy reveals the operatic reserves of human truth that lie beneath the surface of a workplace rom-com.
