Synopsis:

Neil LaBute is arguably the most challenging, provocative, and acclaimed playwright of his generation. Lovely Head and Other Plays brings together his most masterful and affecting recent shorter works.

The title play, which had its American premiere at La MaMa in 2012, rivetingly explores the relationship between a nervous older man and a glib young prostitute, as their evening together drives toward a startling conclusion.

Also included is the one-act play The Great War, which looks at a divorcing couple and the ground they need to cross to reach their own end of hostilities; In the Beginning, which was written as a response to the Occupy movement and produced around the world in 2012-13 as part of Theatre Uncut; The Wager, the stage version of the film Double or Nothing starring Adam Brody; the two-handers A Guy Walks Into a Bar, Over the River and Through the Woods, and Strange Fruit; and two powerful new monologues, Bad Girl and The Pony of Love.

About the Author: Neil LaBute is an award-winning playwright, filmmaker, and screenwriter. His plays include: bash, In a Forest, Dark and Deep, Reasons to be Happy, The Money Shot, and All The Ways To Say I Love You. Film and television work include In the Company of Men, Your Friends and Neighbors, Nurse Betty, Possession, The Shape of Things, Some Velvet Morning, Dirty Weekend, Billy & Billie, and Van Helsing. He is the recipient of a Literature Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
