About the Book:

Things We Said Today features the scripts for Neil LaBute's groundbreaking Directv project 10x10 - a series of short films written and directed by LaBute based on ten compelling original monologues, five each for men and women.

Also included are five short plays:

In Pick One, three white guys come up with a way to solve America's problems.

In The Possible, one young woman seduces another's boyfriend for an unexpected reason.

Call Back features an actress and actor who spar about a past encounter that she, unnervingly, remembers much better than he does.

Good Luck (In Farsi) has two actresses pulling out all the stops in a pre-audition psych out, "a pleasingly astringent study in competitiveness and vanity" - The New York Times

In Squeeze Play a father and his son's baseball coach strike a mutually beneficial deal. 

Rounding out the collection are two monologues commissioned as part of Centerstage's "My America" project.

What people say:

"Mr. LaBute is writing some of the freshest and most illuminating dialogue to be heard anywhere these days." - Ben Brantley, The New York Times
