The production will run at the theatre from the 24th May until the 1st July.
It has been announced that the Park Theatre based in Finsbury Park is set to present the first major revival of Neil LaBute’s The Shape of Things, with performances beginning next month.
Directed by Nicky Allpress and produced by Trish Wadley Productions, the cast is set to include Peaky Blinder’s Amber Anderson as Eve and Bridgerton star Luke Newton as Adam, with further casting yet to be confirmed.
Adam, a geeky young student, drifts into an ever-changing romance with art major, Evelyn who encourages him to improve his appearance. As she instils in him a new found confidence, his best friend’s’ engagement begins to crumble: so unleashing a drama that peels back the ‘skin’ of two modern-day relationships.
Neil LaBute’s play originally premiered at the Almeida Theatre in 2001 starring Rachel Weisz and Paul Rudd.
The creative team behind this revival is set to include: set and costume design by Peter Butler, lighting design by Anna Reddyhof, sound design by Asaf Zahor, costume supervision by Alexandra Kharibian and casting director Amy Jane Blair.
