The Shape of Things

This powerful and poignant play by Neil LaBute explores the nature of art and the moral responsibility of the artist.  Recommended for adult audiences, the play tells the story of Evelyn, a graduate student in art at a mid-western college, and Adam, a nice, shy scruffy security guard in an art gallery. The couple start an intense and passionate relationship, culminating in the shocking climax that brings human manipulation to a new level.

The Laramie Project

Few shows from American Theatre History have had the effect that "The Laramie Project" hashad on whether we, as humans,should allow ourselves to be ruled by hate or by compassion. In 1998, Moises Kaufman and the Tectonic Theatre Group traveled to Laramie, Wyoming, in an effort to interview its residents on how the brutal beating of Matthew Shepard, a gay University of Wyoming student, had affected the community. The play and its characters are a compilation of those interviews.
