The Shape of Things


Nominated for the WhatsOnStage Awards 2024 for Best Off-West End Production

The revival of Neil LaBute’s award winning play THE SHAPE OF THINGS is coming to London’s Park Theatre for a limited time from May to July 2023.

How far would you go for love? What would you be willing to change?

A fast-moving and thrilling piece of theatre set on a college campus in small-town America. It’s a play about relationships, art and friendship where nothing is quite what it seems.

THE SHAPE OF THINGS received its world premiere at London’s Almeida Theatre in 2001, starring Rachel Weisz and Paul Rudd and is revived by the producers of last year’s hit Clybourne Park.
