Following our sell-out run of Genet's The Maids in February, we look forward to presenting LaBute's Autobahn, A Short-Play Cycle.
“Sitting in an automobile was where I first remember understanding how drama works. Hidden in the back seat of a sedan, I quickly realised how deep the chasm or intense the claustrophobia could be inside your average family car.” - Neil LaBute.
As one of America’s most celebrated playwrights, Neil LaBute has enthralled audiences all over the world with his layered characters, sharp dialogue and subtle social commentaries. In Autobahn he gives us seven scenes, each set within the confines a car - an environment from which there is no escape! Inside the car the characters are forced, no matter how reluctantly, to engage in conversation. Each vignette offers a brief insight into the world of a variety of couples, resulting in a montage of intriguing character driven duologues. From the humorous to the unsettling, Autobahn offers its audience the most intriguing of theatrical road trips!
“Neil LaBute is the first dramatist since David Mamet and Sam Shepard - since Edward Albee, actually - to mix sympathy and savagery, pathos and power.” - Donald Lyons, New York Post.
