2004 - 2005
Directors: Jeroen Vandommele and Elger Abbink
Production Leader: Harrie de Vries
The Shape of Things focuses on Evelyn, a graduate arts student who encounters the shy - nerdy if you will - bookworm Adam in a museum.
The two hit it off! Adam falls completely in love with the rather eccentric art student, and who can blamer him? Evelyn is the woman he has always dreamed of; she's strong intelligent, independent and very, very goodlooking indeed.
But, as always, there's more than meets the eye. What is that girl up to exactly? Adam wilfully submits into every desire of Evelyn in order to make him more attractive... Not bad, perhaps, but what are the consequences? And what do Adam's friends Phillip and Jenny think of Adam's makeover? What is the effect of Evelyn on their lives?
The author of the play, Neil Labute (famous for his film "In the Company of Men"), explores the darker, unseemly side of life with this black comedy. What is the role of artistic representation and exploitation in everyday life? Questions raised (but perhaps not fully answered!) by GUTS and The Shape of Things!
