Theatre Northwest will close the semester with a racy, R-rated production.

Neil LaBute’s The Shape of Things is a modern piece targeted at young 20-somethings.

The Shape of Things is very popular amongst university programs because it deals with college students,” said drama associate professor and play director Josh Blann. “It deals with current issues of beauty, what it means to be an attractive person. It deals with relationships and what we will do for the people we are in love with.”

NW student Casey Magin, who plays the role of Evelyn, said the production is current and relatable.

“The play was originally written in 2001, so there are some references that we’ve updated to make sure it stays relevant to the audience,” she said. “We’re using a lot of our own clothing and pieces. I’m going to bring in pieces from my bedroom.”

The Shape of Things is an intimate production with only four character roles and the audience seated on stage.

“These characters — you’ve definitely met people like them,” NW student Bret Duley said. “They’re really just normal people, and the story follows what happens to them.”

Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. April 23-26 and 2 p.m. April 27 in Theatre Northwest (WTLO 1108).

Admission is free for TCC students, faculty and staff, $3 for senior citizens or non-TCC students and $6 for general admission tickets.
