This is how it goes

by Neil LaBute

A funny but jaded 30-something guy has moved back to his small hometown leaving behind the city rat-race. He happens to run into the girl he had a crush on in high school. The dream girl. The unattainable one. The sort of girl who went out with the sports star, never the nerdy funny guy like our narrator. In fact, she married the sports star but 12 years and two kids later their marriage is in trouble…

A flirtation begins, pulling them into a triangle of love, racism and distrust. Compelled by their desires, LaBute’s characters manipulate the truth to get what they want. All is not what it seems in this thrilling tale of intrigue and betrayal.
