Now running at The Weekend Theater – Neil LaBute’s THE SHAPE OF THINGS

twt Shape-of-Things-PosterNeil LaBute’s The Shape of Things opened last night at The Weekend Theater.  It continues tonight, October 2 & 3 and 9 & 10.

This modern day retelling of the fall of man challenges our most deeply entrenched ideas about art and love. “In The Shape of Things”, Evelyn, a sexy, aggressive artist, and Adam, a shy, insecure student, become embroiled in an affair after meeting in a museum. Before long, Adam, under Evelyn’s steady influence, goes to unimaginable lengths to meet her approval, and the show veers into the kind of dangerous, seductive territory that LaBute does best.

Directed by Byron Taylor, it stars Ryan Heumier, Katie Choate, Rod T. Watts and Hannah-Leigh Baker.

Curtain time is at 7:30pm. Tickets are $16 for adults and $12 for students and seniors.
