We're in love with the shape of this cast. The Shape of Things begins previews at the Park Theatre on 24 May, ahead of an opening night on 30 May, and performances to 1 July.

The college drama follows Adam, a student who pays his way through college. When he meets Evelyn, Adam begins to attract unfound attention. However, meeting new people alters his personality.

Luke Newton will play Adam. The Bridgerton actor plays Colin Bridgerton, alongside Jonathan Bailey as Anthony Bridgerton, and Luke Thompson as Benedict Bridgerton. Amber Anderson will play Eve, alongside Carla Harrison-Hodge as Jenny, and Majid Mehdizadeh-Valoujerdy as Phillip.

Nicky Allpress directs Neil LaBute’s 2001 play. The creative team includes Peter Butler (set and costume design,) Anna Reddyhoff (lighting design,) and Asaf Zahor (sound design.)
