Today’s Joanna Page: Fat Pig

Kevin Bishop and Joanna Page in Fat Pig

Today’s Joanna Page is Fat Pig, Neil LaBute’s size-related comedy play, which has been running in London for a good few months now. In fact, I’ve already reviewed ittwice.

However, from the 11th September, it’s going to be moving away from the Trafalgar Studios to the Comedy Theatre and Rob Webb and Kris Marshall are going to be replaced by Nick Burns and Kevin Bishop respectively. Then from October, Joanna Page is going to be off filming the Gavin & Stacey Christmas special and is going to be replaced by Kelly Brook. No word on what’s happening with Ella Smith, yet.

So here’s a publicity shot of our Joanna with Kevin Bishop (photo by Simon Turtle). And this is her (with Matthew Horne) in Gavin & Stacey:

What a chameleon. How’s she do that?

PS There’s a video on the Fat Pig web site in which Neil LaBute interviews the current cast. In it, Rob Webb admits there was an evening where he chose to play Tom as “a complete spoon” then changed his mind and went back to playing it the original way. Any want to bet he did it on the night that I first went to see it, thus explaining the change in performance by the time I went back to see it again?
