Neil LaBute's SOME GIRL(S) Kicks Off Dragon Theater's 2nd Stages Series Tonight
Some Girl(s) by Neil LaBute kicks off Dragon Theatre's new 2nd Stages Program.
Picture this: you're an up and coming writer with a blossoming career and a beautiful fiancée who loves you dearly. What would you do in this situation? In this dark comedy by Neil LaBute (In the Company of Men, The Shape of Things) you'd have a life crisis and go on a cross-country tour to visit your ex-girlfriends. LaBute's play is a portrait of an artist who steps back to look at past mistakes-and figure out what to do with the scars that still linger.
