Love. Deception. Betrayal. Art.
The Shape of Things tells the story of a young art student Evelyn, and shy, insecure Adam, who become entangled in a steamy affair after meeting in a museum. Evelyn decides to give her new boyfriend a makeover, but just how far will she go? LaBute’s darkly comic modern-day telling of the fall of humanity is nothing less than dangerously seductive and challenges our deeply entrenched ideas about image, identity, loyalty, love, and art.
The all student cast stars Michaela Lonati, Nathaniel Vilandre, Thera Driscol, and Griffin Ostrowski and is directed by department chair, Dr. Kathleen Sills.
October 23-24 at 7:30 pm and October 25 at 2:00 and 7:30 pm.
