About the Play:

The volume Lovely Head and Other Plays brings together some of Neil LaBute's most masterful and affecting shorter works.

Lovely Head is a one-act play that had its American premiere Off-Off Broadway at New York's famed La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club (La MaMa E.T.C.) in 2012. A bizarre, contemporary love affair that 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 Great War, his contribution to Ensemble Studio Theatre's (EST's) one-act-play marathon, which looks at a divorcing couple and the ground they need to cross to reach their own end of hostilities.

In the Beginning, is a two-person play in which a sceptical parent and an idealistic child debate the Occupy movement. It was among the highlights of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and produced around the world in 2012-13 as part of the British-based collective "Theatre Uncut".

The Wager, the stage version of the film Double or Nothing starring Adam Brody. On their way home from a club in NYC, a guy and his girlfriend are stopped by a homeless man and a game of chance quickly begins to escalate into something more dangerous.

Plus three 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).

What people say:

"Neil LaBute is the most legitimately provocative and polarizing playwright at work today."— The New Yorker

"The play twists continually, and the truth is always one twist away. LaBute is such a skillful writer — edgy, funny, outrageous...." — Financial Times
