Actors’ Mission Presents “The Shape of Things” by Neil Labute
“The Shape of Things” is a contemporary drama, which continues LaBute’s exploration of the unsettling relationship that can develop between a man and a woman in “love”. The young male protagonist Adam is enchanted by a beautiful art student, Evelyn. First Adam thinks he has found himself but as the relationship develops and he is transformed by it, he fears he has lost his reality and his identity. It’s an ancient story indeed, as old as the Garden of Eden. “The Shape of Things” explores sexual themes and uses adult language and may not be appropriate for all ages.
