Description - The Shape of Things by Neil LaBute

How far would you go for love? For art? What would you be willing to change? Which price might you pay? Such are the painful questions explored by Neil Labute in "The Shape of Things". A young student drifts into an ever-changing relationship with an art major while his best friends' engagement crumbles, so unleashing a drama that peels back the skin of two modern-day relationships, exposing the raw meat and gristle that lie beneath. The world premiere of "The Shape of Things" was presented at the Almeida, London, in May 2001.
