FATTY FATTY NO FRIENDS tells the story of Tommy, an overweight kid struggling to get through that most wretched time of life: childhood. Days, weeks, and years of teasing from his schoolmates have taken their toll on the mild-mannered boy, but still he's doing his best to continue on in whatever way he can. But when the people he thought were his friends join in with the others, will he be able to forgive them...or will he snap?
FATTY FATTY NO FRIENDS features original music and orchestrations by Christian De Gré, lyrics by Joseph Reese-Anderson, and is based upon a dark children's book by author Serrana Gay.
