My Fat Friend - Australian Tour 1978
Starring Paula Wilcox, Bill Farley, John Murphy, Trevor Prior
The comedy is an ugly duckling tale about an overweight young woman who attracts the attention of a potential suitor. With the help of her friends/roommates, she undergoes a diet and exercise regime to shed the extra pounds she assumes she needs to lose in order to hold the man's attention.
The play premiered on November 6, 1972 at the Theatre Royal, Brighton, where it ran for one week before transferring to the Rex Theatre in Wilmslow for another week's engagement. On December 6, it opened in London's West End at the Globe Theatre, where it enjoyed a modest run despite lukewarm reviews.

John Inman also appeared in the show, before becoming a television star in the BBC department-store comedy Are You Being Served?.
After seven previews, the Broadway production, directed by Robert Moore, opened on March 31, 1974 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre, where it ran for 288 performances.
