Open Auditions: The Shape of Things by Neil Labute

Thursday, August 29, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Venue: University Theatre

After a chance meeting in a museum, Evelyn, a sexy, aggressive artist, and Adam, a shy, insecure student, become embroiled in an intense affair. Before long, it veers into dangerous, seductive territory as Adam, under Evelyn's steady influence, goes to unimaginable lengths to improve his appearance and character. Challenging our most deeply entrenched ideas about art and love; How far would you go for love? For art? What concessions would you make? What price would you be willing to pay?
