How far would you go for love? For art? What would you be willing to change? What price might you pay?
Such are the painful questions explored by Neil LaBute in his play, THE SHAPE OF THINGS. A young student drifts into an ever-changing relationship with an art major while his best friend's engagement crumbles, so unleashing a drama that peels back the skin of two modern-day relationships.
"[LaBute] continues to probe the fascinating dark side of individualism, whose ultimate evil is an inability to imagine the suffering of others...LaBute's great gift is to live in and to chronicle that murky area of not knowing, which mankind spends much of its waking life denying. Where does truth end and fiction begin? Is the fiction more valuable than the truth? Do the results justify the means?" - John Lahr, The New Yorker
