About this item
Neil LaBute burst onto the American theater scene in 1989 with his controversial debut work Filthy Talk for Troubled Times. Set in a barroom in Anytown USA and populated by a series of everymen (and two beleaguered everywomen), this series of frank exchanges explores the innumerable varieties of American intolerance. A unique snapshot of the times, the play--seldom allowed production by the author since--provides a compelling look at the early thinking and evolution of one of our great theater artists. Also in this collection is a series of new, short works, some never before produced. They include "Helter Skelter," which the Los Angeles Times called an "indoor Zoo Story" full of "existential whiplash" and "awash with crackling dialogue"; "The New Testament," a showbiz satire with a "cutting edge" (Hollywood Reporter) that takes a close look at the perils of color-blind casting; and "The Furies," in which a woman helps navigate her brother's breakup with his out-and-then-, perhaps, in-the-closet-again lover.
