Neil LaBute's The Shape of Things will be revived on the West End this summer, starring Bridgerton's Luke Newton, and Peaky Blinders's Amber Anderson.
The production, which will play the Park Theatre, begins previews May 24, with opening night set for May 30, and a planned end to the limited run scheduled for July 1. Originally premiering in 2001 with Paul Rudd and Rachel Weisz in the leading roles, The Shape of Things was adapted for the screen in 2003 with the original cast.
In the darkly humorous play, an art student befriends a museum guard, peeling back the layers of artifice on modern relationships through four key questions: How far would you go for love? How far for art? What would you be willing to change? Which price might you pay?
The 2023 revival will be directed by Nicky Allpress, with additional casting to be announced at a later date. The creative team will include set and costume designer Peter Butler, lighting designer Anna Reddyhoff, sound designer Asaf Zahor, costume supervisor Alexandra Kharibian, and casting director Amy Jane Blair.
