(ENGLEWOOD, NJ) -- Take a peek at Black Box Performing Arts Center's current production of Nicky Silver’s Fat Men in Skirts, running just four more shows this weekend! Performances are Thursday through Sunday at 8:00pm. Tickets can be purchased at www.BlackBoxPAC.com at $40 for adults and $35 for students/seniors.
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.

“Fat Men in Skirts — as dark and, at times, gruesome as it is — is ultimately a comedy... it’s so gleefully “out there” you can’t look away," said Jay Lustig.

Attendees will also be asked to fill out a COVID screening form for contact tracing purposes.
