Adam, a student of anglistics, earns his living by working as a security guard in a museum. Here, he meets Evelyn, an art student. Adam's best friend, Phillip, believes that the young student has a negative influence on Adam. The only person in Adam's entourage who accepts Evelyn is Jenny, Phillip's fiancée. From the shy and quiet student, Adam becomes a self-confident person who can take responsibility for his own actions. However, the biggest surprise is waiting for him at the end…
"Neil LaBute's play is not only reaffirming the qualities that make it
so sought after by directors and young actors alike, but also, is the
opportunity for a great show, prepared with utmost rigor- German rigor, I
would say – by director Cristi Juncu and scenographer Cosmin Ardeleanu.
They're joined by four very good interprets, impeccably chosen. […]
Cristi Juncu likes stories. He makes theatre in order to tell stories.
He's adamant that as storyteller to be as clear, obvious and convincing
as possible. […] And The Shape of Things at the German State
Theatre in Timisoara is, at least in my opinion, one of his best
performances. It's as such also due to the fact that the director has
found the ideal collaborator in set designer Cosmin Ardeleanu."
