Playwright Neil LaBute’s 2001 work “The Shape of Things” premiered in London and in two years was on the silver screen. It has enjoyed repeated revivals on both sides of the Atlantic.

Set in a small college town, it focused on a quartet of college students whose interpersonal lives set into action machinations that question psychological manipulation, art and intimacy.
Before the action is done, lives are shattered, cruelty exposed and humiliation complete.

This “dark romantic comedy for a modern age” is suggested for audiences above 18. Fulton Burns directs while Gabrielle Brou, Brandon Mallette, Tahj Vaughans and Victoria Blackmon star.

Curtain is 7:30 p.m. for these last three performances, Feb. 26 through 28 at the Laidlaw Performing Arts Center (5751 USA Drive S.) on the University of South Alabama campus.

Admission is $14, $12 for USA faculty/staff/alumni/active military/senior citizens and $10 for students. Group rates are also available.
