What goes into shaping who we are? How much control do we have? When unathletic, unassuming college student Adam meets the exciting, savvy Evelyn in the midst of an attempted act of vandalism, his world opens up. The unlikely, sudden romance between the pair sees Adam blossom and evolve, as Evelyn guides him to improve his style, physical appearance, and choice of friends, yet it is not until Adam is almost unrecognizable that he realizes the cost. Neil LaBute's stunning play has shocked audiences since its 2001 London debut, and SUNY Oswego's new production promises a searing, controversial meditation on art, culture, and influence. $15 ($7 for SUNY Oswego students) includes parking. Tickets for the Nov. 7 preview performance $5 (free for SUNY Oswego students). oswego.universitytickets.com. For more information: 315-312-2130.
