THE SHAPE OF THINGS
Written By Neil LaBute
Directed By Peter Blackburn
How much are you willing to change for
someone you love?
After a chance meeting in a museum, Adam begins an increasingly
intense affair with the enigmatic Evelyn who is gorgeous, intense... and way
out of his league. Under Evelyn's
influence, Adam blossoms into the ideal boyfriend and an all-round better man.
So why do things spin so radically out of control?
Neil LaBute's powerful work bluntly asks; How far would you go for
love? What would you be willing to change? ...and what price would you be
willing to pay? The Shape Of Things
peels back the skin of modern day relationships and challenges our very notions
of love, identity and truth.
"LaBute is the first dramatist since
David Mamet and Sam Shepard - since Edward Albee, actually - to mix sympathy
and savagery, pathos and power. The Shape Of Things continues his fascination
with the power games men and women play." (New York Post)
"LaBute continues to probe the
fascinating dark side of individualism. His great gift is to live in and to
chronicle that murky area of not-knowing, which mankind spends much of its
waking life denying." (The New Yorker)
