06-07 Play Series subtitution

Jobsite Theater, TBPAC's resident theater company in the Shimberg Playhouse has announced a susbtitution to their 06-07 Play Series.

Originally slated to do Three Days of Rain, Jobsite has just acquired the rights to Neil Labute's (The Shape of Things, The Mercy Seat) newest release This Is How It Goes. Jobsite has been granted the southeastern US premiere of this work, as they also will have for Martin McDonagh's The Pillowman at the start of their season.

In This Is How It Goes Labute trains his eye on a small town in middle America for what is billed as a "new tale of manipulation, exploitation, race and infidelity," through "the story of an interracial love triangle." The original production was at New York's Public Theater in the spring of 2005 and starred Ben Stiller, Amanda Peet and Jeffrey Wright directed by George C. Wolfe. Wolfe and Wright were also a part of the premiere of Topdog/Underdog at the Public, which Jobsite closed in February.
