The shape of things

How far would you go for love? What concessions would you make? What price would you be willing to pay? Such are the painful questions explored by Neil Labute in his play The Shape of Things – a modern-day retelling of the fall of man. After a chance meeting in a museum, Evelyn, a sexy, aggressive artist, and Adam, a shy, insecure student, become embroiled in an intense affair that soon veers into the kind of dangerous, seductive territory that Labute does best. Only in the final and shocking exhibition, which challenges our most deeply entrenched ideas about art and love, does Evelyn reveal her true intentions.

The Shape of Things appeared on stage at Granville Island’s Waterfront Theatre from August 22 – September 1, 2007 featuring Julie McIsaac, Joel Sturrock, Lisa Aasebo & Jon Lachlan Stewart. Directed by Sabrina Evertt.
