LET'S FIX ANDY - Fat - Andy

Salt Lake City, Utah

PLAY DESCRIPTION

LET’S FIX ANDY deals with male body images, friendship, and growing into being an adult. Andy’s best friends, Logan, Marcus, and George decide it’s time they step in after he’s been dumped by his longtime girlfriend Megan, to snap him out of his funk. All three of them have different ideas of what Andy actually needs, and so Andy is dragged to the gym, the bar, and a cabin in the woods before things come to a head and he declares that he doesn’t need fixing. By the end of the play, with all four playing video games in Andy’s safe place, his couch, they realize that there’s no fixing anyone, and all any of us can really ask for is friendship that is focused on acceptance for who we are.

MONOLOGUE DESCRIPTION

Time: Present                                 

Situation: The opener of a play grappling with male body image, Andy revels in a word he hates to be described as: fat.

Subject Matter: Body Image, Weight, Overweight, Men, Fat

Note from Playwright: I was inspired to write LET'S FIX ANDY because male body image isn't something often talked about, I found the lack of acknowledgement astounding, and dived in, starting with interviewing the men in my life about how they felt about their bodies.
