Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished

The Melbourne Theatre Company kicks off its 2013 Education season with a Melissa Bubnic's gothic tale of 400kg man-blob

Arty, a morbidly obese 18-year-old, agrees to star in a reality TV show – Shocking Fat Stories – after the studio offers to pay for gastric band surgery. His life is about to change, but for the better? Can Arty overcome his cravings and secure the kind of ordinary life he's so often imagined for himself? Will his miracle transformation be a ticket to personal freedom?

Using multimedia and puppetry, Beached is a dark satire about reality TV, love and the person behind the freak.
