The Shape of Things Information
How far would you go for love? What would you be willing to change?
A fast-moving and thrilling piece of theatre set on a college campus in small-town America. It's a play about relationships, art and friendship where nothing is quite what it seems.
Adam, a geeky young student, drifts into an ever-changing romance with art major, Evelyn who encourages him to improve his appearance. As she instils in him a new found confidence, his best friend’s' engagement begins to crumble: so unleashing a drama that peels back the 'skin’ of two modern-day relationships.
Neil LaBute’s award winning play received its world premiere at the Almeida Theatre in 2001, starring Rachel Weisz and Paul Rudd and is revived by the producers of last year’s hit Clybourne Park.
