In a second special event, director Cynthia Ross and cast will ask the questions: How far would you go for love? For art? What would you be willing to change? What price might you pay? Such are the painful questions explored by Neil LaBute in The Shape of Things. A young student drifts into an ever-changing relationship with an art major while his best friends' engagement crumbles, so unleashing a drama that peels back the skin of two modern-day relationships. Auditions will be held on May 15, 16 at 7:45pm at the theatre’s 78 Winans Ave location, with performances on August 10, 11 and 12 at 8:00pm.
