Description

Brad and Jodie need Tate to do them a favor. A really big favor. Brad is married to Jodie. Jodie went to school with Tate. Tate doesn’t trust Brad. Brad and Jodie are at a life-changing crossroads and struggling to make a monumental decision about their life and love, and Tate—just maybe—has been there before. In this timely, dark, and dazzling new play, Neil LaBute takes a penetrating, point-blank look at a couple confronting the hardest decision of their lives and the aftermath of that decision. In How To Fight Loneliness, Neil LaBute has written perhaps his most shocking, and also most tender, play yet.
