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)
