Neil LaBute

Filmmaker, director, and playwright Neil LaBute will be joining us at Queens Library on Friday, February 20 at 5:00 p.m. to discuss his work, which has been praised for combining “intriguing moral and ethical metaphors with dark portraits of the underside of American life.”

He has written more than 20 plays, including Reasons to Be Happy, The Money Shot, and The Way We Get By, which is set to open this summer. His films include the prize-winning In the Company of Men, The Shape of Things, Some Velvet Morning, and the upcoming Dirty Weekend. He was also gracious enough to speak with us in a recent interview.
