Does art, or indeed truth, have any moral limits?

Neil LaBute


Neil Labute’s The Shape of Things is a dark comedy which explores how in both art and life, appearances can deceive. In a small conservative town in middle America, Adam, a nerdy undergraduate English student, meets provocateur and arts major Evelyn. As their lives intertwine, lies and infidelities mount, and Adam does all he can to maintain what he thinks is the perfect relationship. LaBute leaves us with the question “does art, or truth, have any moral boundaries?”.
