Synopsis

A rotund law student, his meathead brother, and a low-fat, low-carb Christmas.

Matt and Chet's mother died three months ago and Matt has been willed the family home. He wants to lose some weight and turn his life around, so he and his girlfriend, Amy, decide to invite Chet round to discuss the future. Chet's merciless teasing and undesirable lifestyle do not fit with Matt's goals for his future, but does Amy fit either?

This is a ten minute play.
