Neil LaBute is one of Americaâs mostÂ provocative and lauded playwrights, andÂ his darkly exhilarating talent is on gloriousÂ view in this new collection.Things We SaidÂ TodayÂ features the scripts for Neil LaButeâsÂ groundbreaking Directv project 10x10âa seriesÂ of short films written and directed by LaButeÂ based on ten compelling original monologues,Â five each for men and women. Â
Also included are five short plays displaying theÂ power and scope of Neil LaButeâs creative vision.Â In Pick One, three white guys come up with aÂ way to solve Americaâs problems; in The PossibleÂ one young woman seduces anotherâs boyfriendÂ for an unexpected reason. Call BackÂ featuresÂ an actress and actor who spar about a pastÂ encounter that she, unnervingly, remembersÂ much better than he does. Good Luck (In Farsi),Â âa pleasingly astringent study in competitivenessÂ and vanityâ (The New York Times) has twoÂ actresses pulling out all the stops in a preauditionÂ psych out; and in Squeeze PlayÂ a fatherÂ and his sonâs baseball coach strike a mutually beneficial deal. Rounding out the collectionÂ are two monologues commissioned as part ofÂ Centerstageâs âMy Americaâ project.
