On a beautiful Sunday morning decide to have scotch for breakfast in this play the author of Spike Heels, The Family of Mann and Loose Knit.   Elly is pregnant and is considering an abortion, Jen is being harassed by a co worker who is obsessed with her and Gayle is just feeling a bit lost.  Their problems are compounded by a fourth roommate, Jessica, a religious young woman who has little compassion for their confused attempts to make sense of life in the nineties.  As they drink, joke and argue, it becomes clear how difficult it is to make a moral decision in an increasingly complex world.

The Letter By W. Somerset Maugham  | Open: 05/05/13 Close: 05/05/13
Love Creek Productions is proud to presenting W. Somerset Maughan's "The Letter". This play is seldom produced. Most audience of today would know it as the 7 Oscar nominee film, William Wilder for best director Oscar, with Bettie Davis and others all being nominated for their work. This is an overlooked play by Maugham, who gave us such works as "Of Human Bondage" "The Constant Wife" "Rain" "The Moon and the Sixpence." For those of you who have seen the film but do not know the play, it's quite interesting to view the play before the censors made their demands.

The Shape Of Things  | Open: 10/26/12 Close: 11/03/12
In a modern version of Adam's seduction by Eve, The Shape of Things pits gentle, awkward, overweight Adam against experienced, analytical, amoral Evelyn, a graduate student in art. After a chance meeting at a museum, Evelyn and Adam embark on an intense relationship that causes shy and principled Adam to go to extraordinary lengths, including cosmetic surgery, and a betrayal of his best friend, to improve his appearance and character. In the process, Evelyn's subtle and insistent coaching results in a reconstruction of Adam's fundamental moral character. Only in a final and shocking exhibition does Evelyn reveal the nature of her interest in Adam, of her detached artist's perspective and sense of authority--to her, Adam is no more than "flesh.... one of the most perfect materials on earth. Natural, beautiful, and malleable." Labute's latest work is an intense and disturbing study not only of the uses of power within human relationships, but also of the ethics involved in the relationship of art and life. To what extent is an artist licensed to shape and change her medium or to alter the work of another artist? What is acceptable artistic material? At what point does creation become manipulation, and at what point does creation destroy? Or, is the new Adam, handsome and confident if heart broken, an admirable result of the most challenging artistic endeavor? The Shape of Things challenges society's most deeply entrenched ideas about art, manipulation, and love.
