THIS IS HOW IT GOES
by Neil LaBute
"LaBute is not just saying, as so often, that men are crummy and artists exploitative. He is offering a vivid picture of the embedded racism of small-town America."
This Is How It Goes explores the consequences of an interracial love triangle, staged on continually shifting moral ground. Political correctness is thrown out of the window in this gripping tale of bigotry and betrayal by both black and white in America. In this battle of affections, we are forced to reassess our own attitudes towards ethnicity, gender and love itself.
Written by multi Tony Award nominated Neil LaBute, This Is How It Goes has been staged in London, Hamburg and Broadway to critical acclaim.
"Neil Labute is at the very top of his game. As he says, "Words only have power if you let 'em". He does so with a vengeance!"
BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE
"Neil LaBute is one of the most exciting new talents in theatre and film to have emerged in the 1990s."
CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS
"As LaBute continues to write and direct Neil LaBute: Stage and Cinema will be a resource for scholars, actors, directors, and enthusiasts seeking to understand the thematic and stylistic evolution and creative process of this multitalented theatre, film, and literary artist."
