Rejoice! On September 9, 2010, the English Theatre of Hamburg will present its new premiere. “THIS IS HOW IT GOES” is the title of the play written by the famous American playwright Neil LaBute. It deals with such classic themes as prejudice, racism and – last but not least – bigotry. The topics of this gripping play are the still existing problems and tensions between black and white citizens in today’s America. The author does not care in the least for political correctness and thus adds a funny note to his drama. Neil LaBute who is of French Canadian, English and Irish ancestry, writes plays for the theatre and, at the same time, boasts an impressive record as a filmmaker. For example … “The Wicker Man” was an American version of a British cult classic which starred famous actors like Nicolas Cage and Ellen Burstyn. A great British newspaper recently dubbed Neil LaBute “America’s misanthrope par excellence.” Let us put it this way: The author is absolutely free of any illusions and just calls a spade a spade.
Save the date: Premiere on September 9, 2010
