No American playwright has written more compellingly about the subtle ways in which people inflict pain on each other than Neil LaBute. His films, In the Company of Men and Your Friends and Neighbors, both gained critical renown for their biting saitre and caustic wit. The Distance From Here (2002) is another take on the harsh underbelly of human nature. In this intense look at the dark side of American suburbia – a suburban wasteland of white trash in the Northwest that follows the mundane, incenstuous, murderous life of an emotionally impoverished family – Mr. LaBute has written one of his most riveting plays.
Contains harsh language and nudity; not intended for young audiences.
