How far would you go for love? For art? What would you be willing to change? What 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. The play is an intense and disturbing study not only of the uses of power within human relationships, but also of the ethics involved in the relationship of art and life- challenging society's most deeply entrenched ideas about art, manipulation, and love.
