SpeakEasy Debuts "Shape of Things"

New England Premiere from January 31 - February 22.

From a sellout engagement in London and a solid turn last season off-Broadway, “The Shape of Things” will have it’s New England premiere courtesy of SpeakEasy Stage Company. Performances at the Boston Center for the Arts run from January 31 through February 22.

The provocative drama by Neil LeBute (author of “Bash” and “The Mercy Seat” as well as the film “In The Company of Men”) tells the story of Adam, a gawky museum guard, who is confronted at work one day by Evelyn, a beautiful art student armed with a can of spray paint.

Evelyn is hell-bent on protesting what she calls “false art” and thus begins an unusual relationship that ends, surprisingly, in romance. Along the way, Adam changes his hair, his wardrobe and even his nose to please Evelyn.

The SpeakEasy cast will include Walter Michael Belenky, Tommy Day Carey, Stacy Fisher and Laura Latrielle. The production is being directed by Paul Melone, SpeakEasy’s production manager. A 2000 graduate of BU’s Fine Arts Program, Melone has directed SpeakEasy’s past two entries in Boston’s Theatre Marathon as well as readings for American Stage Festival and Boston’s Playwright’s Theatre.
