About the Play:

The Distance from Here is a full-length drama by Neil LaBute. This riveting play is an intense look at the dark side of American suburbia.

With little to occupy their time other than finding a decent place to hang out — the zoo, the mall, the school parking lot — Darrell and Tim are two American teenagers who lack any direction or purpose in their lives. When Darrell's suspicion about the faithlessness of his girlfriend is confirmed and Tim comes to her defense, there is nothing to brake their momentum as all three speed toward disaster.

Cast: 4 women, 5 men

What people say:

"LaBute, in his most ambitious and best play to date, gets inside the emptiness of American culture, the Masquerade and the evil of neglect. The Distance from Here, it seems to me, is a new title to be added to the short list of important contemporary plays." — The New Yorker

"
LaBute's skill, and the shortness of the scenes, are compelling...[his] excellent writing generates an exact depiction of empty soulless, thoughtless lives." — Times Literary Supplement
