Mon July, 26, 2010 at 6:00 p.m: Neil LaBute Reading, Discussion and Book Signing "Filthy Talk for Troubled Times" at The Drama Book Shop

Neil LaBute burst onto the American theater scene in 1989 with his controversial debut work "Filthy Talk for Troubled Times." Set in a barroom in Anytown USA and populated by a series of everymen (and two beleaguered everywomen), this series of frank exchanges explores the innumerable varieties of American intolerance. A unique snapshot of the times,the play -- seldom allowed production by the author since -- provides a compelling look at the early thinking and evolution of one of our great theater artists.
