Arty is huge. Ginormous. Morbidly and grossly obese, he is in need of a gastric bypass to save his life. At over 400 kilos, he is the world's fattest teenager. Arty is also being followed by a reality TV crew. Will he lose the kilos needed to have the operation? Will he survive to eat another cream puff? Will Louise, his Pathways-to-Work officer, transform his life in ways he never imagined? Unapologetically satiric, Beached is also the moving story of a man imprisoned in his own body. It lays bare the mercenary nature of reality TV, and turns the microscope on societys insatiable appetite for human misery. (1 act, 7 male, 5 female).
