Fat F**K

Synopsis:
Fat F*** follows Sam, a closet chubby chaser in search of a soul mate. Sam is torn between his desires to be with the fat women that he is attracted to and his concern about how people would perceive him if he were to publically be seen with a fat woman. Sam causes the women in his life suffering: He barely tolerates his skinny girlfriend Claudia. He is involved in a torrid affair with his married, zaftig boss angela. Finally, he meets chunky chef Gina, who could very well be his soul mate. To complicate matters, Sam is haunted by the ghost of his mother, a fat woman who only wants her son to find the right woman and be happy for the rest of his life. In the words of Sam's mother, "apparently my son's anti-fat prejudices are at conflict with his natural desires and he's too self-centered and egotistical to have anything more than a superficial sexual relationship with a woman of Reubenesque proportions. . . that's a fancy way to say that my son is a closet chubby chaser."

Notes:
Fat F*** is currently A one Act play. The Author is working to further develop the story As A full-length play with two Additional characters And As A screenplay.

Welcome to the Family begs the question "How far will parents go to protect their children?" Welcome to the Family is presented complete with commercials.

Like the sitcom, they have been deemed "unfit for public consumption", so they will never be seen on network TV.
