THE SHAPE OF THINGS
by Neil LaBute
"LaBute's caustic tale confirms Wilde's dictum that 'all art is immoral "
The Shape of Things is a modern day cautionary tale following the lives of four young students who become emotionally and romantically involved with each other. This heart-breaking and hilarious ‘romantic comedy of sorts’ explores the relationship between morality and art, and society’s preoccupation with aesthetics. What hidden motivations lurk beneath the surface of normality, and how far would you go for love?
“LaBute has that rarest of attributes, a distinctive voice.”
“What’s it about? Religion, art, relationships? Above all, it’s about what Evelyn calls “people’s obsession with the surface of things.”
