|‘The Shape of Things’ hits Main Stage West
Neil LaBute’s biting, contemporary comedy “The Shape of Things” begins its run at Sebastopol’s Main Stage West tonight through May 19.
The play, directed and designed by David Lear, is a bitterly funny, controversial exploration of morality and gender roles in modern America. The play tells the story of Evelyn, a sexy, aggressive artist, and Adam, a shy, insecure student, who become embroiled in an intense affair. Before long, it veers into the kind of dangerous, seductive territory LaBute does best, as Adam, under Evelyn's steady influence, goes to unimaginable lengths to improve his appearance and character. It asks the question, “How far would you go for love?”
