the shape of things

Written by Neil LaBute
Directed by Gary Seddon
Performance Dates: June 10 - 25, 2011

While visiting an art museum, a nerdy college student named Adam meets an iconoclastic artist named Evelyn and is instantly smitten. As their relationship develops, she gradually encourages Adam to change in various ways that surprise his older friends, Jenny and Philip. However, as events progress, Evelyn's antics become darker and darker as her influence begins to twist Adam and his friends in hurtful ways. "When playwright-filmmaker Neil LaBute turns to the question, What is art?, you can predict two things about his answer: It will entertain and disturb you." -Christine Dolen, Miami Herald.
