About the Book:

The complete original screenplay to Your Friends & Neighbors by Neil Labute, a searing display of the war between the sexes, delivered with the kind of wit used by the great Restoration playwrights to expose the hypocrisies in male/female relationships.

Neil LaBute's debut feature, In the Company of Men, a latter-day Les Liaisons Dangereuses set against the backdrop of middle-management America was described by Variety as "a dark, probing, truly disturbing exploration of yuppie angst and male anxieties". In Your Friends & Neighbors, male anxiety is again on show, but in a much wider context, revealing the rabid desire of people-regardless of sex — to serve their own interests at any cost.

The intimacy between husband and wife, the trust between friend and neighbour, the mindsets that determine so many of people's actions today are scrutinized and found wanting. Neil LaBute, who has been described as the new Kubrick, creates a representative yet recognisable world through the use of language filled with the complex nuances of everyday speech.

What people say:

"The work of an original filmmaker who takes no prisoners. — The New York Times

"A brutally funny sex comedy." — Rolling Stone
