Bats Theatre, 1 Kent Terrace, Wellington

A tale of a group of humans under attack from an insidious force. Nutritionist Malcolm Sweet is the first to realise something is wrong. His patients are morbidly obese and dropping like flies, and then he runs over a little girl, crying for her ice cream ... Something has a hold over these people and he's going to find out what it is. What he discovers will shock you to the pit of your stomach.
