THE STORY: Betty and Bobby are sister and brother, but they have little in common. She's a college professor with a prim demeanor, and he's a carpenter with a foul mouth and violent streak. Betty has a wild history that Bobby won't let her forget. Yet on the night when Betty urgently needs help to empty her cabin in the woods, she calls on Bobby. In this exhilarating play of secrets and sibling rivalry, LaBute unflinchingly explores the dark territory of "the lies you tell yourself to get by."
"You never know quite where you are with Neil LaBute…And in this highly entertaining, 100-minute two-hander he pulls the rug from under our feet so often that we end up feeling breathless." —The Guardian (London). "A fun, rug-snatching piece." —Time Out London. "A meditation on what is and is not true, on the ease of rushing to misjudgment…[A] manifestation of the longstanding authorial fascination with the close link between deep intimacy and dark violence." —Chicago Tribune. "The story of a brother and sister caught up in a terrible and complicated dynamic…utterly absorbing." —Australian Stage.com.
