About the Play:

Some Girl(s) is a full-length drama by Neil LaBute. One guy, four exes, four cities … it's one roller coaster of a trip. A man about to get married visits four women from his past who he thinks he "wronged" looking for closure. Will it work? Probably not, but there's still hope. By turns humorous, serious and truthful, Some Girl(s) is an incisive view of the minefield of romantic relationships from the brilliant pen of Neil LaBute.

Your career as a writer is blossoming, your beautiful, young fiancée is waiting to get married and rush off to Cancun by your side, so what is your natural reaction? Well, if you're a man, it's probably to get nervous and start calling up old girlfriends. And so begins a single man's odyssey through four hotel rooms as he flies across the United States in search of the perfect woman (that he's already broken up with). In grand LaBute fashion, this by turns outrageously funny and deadly serious portrait of the artist as a young seducer casts a truthful, hilarious light on a typical young American male as he wanders through the heart of darkness that is himself. Dually instructive to both men and women: he will find it a handy field manual in 'how-to', she will find it a horror story bathed in truth. This edition includes a deleted scene.

Cast: 3 women, 2 men

What people say:

"The most legitimately provocative and polarizing playwright at work today." — New York Magazine

"Some Girl(s) is undoubtedly funny at times, and LaBute analyses the sexual relationships with a searching accuracy that might be described as wise. But gentle? Never. This is a play where the gloves keep coming off and characters inflict real damage on each other." — The Journal News (White Plains, NY)

"[LaBute's] view of modern men and women is unsparing ... [He] is holding up a pitiless mirror to ourselves. We may not like what we see, but we can't deny that — if only in some dark corner of our souls — it is there?" — The Daily Telegraph (UK)

"LaBute ... continues to probe the fascinating dark side of individualism . . . [His] great gift is to live in and to chronicle that murky area of not-knowing, which mankind spends much of its waking life denying." — The New Yorker
