Product Description

A young wife with cancer and her husband seek a third party to help them out with something they can’t quite manage themselves, in Neil LaBute’s affecting and utterly surprising new play.

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.

Neil LaBute is an award-winning playwright, filmmaker, and screenwriter. His plays include: bash, In a Forest, Dark and Deep, Reasons to be Happy, The Money Shot, and All The Ways To Say I Love You. Film and television work include In the Company of Men, Your Friends and Neighbors, Nurse Betty, Possession, The Shape of Things, Some Velvet Morning, Dirty Weekend, Billy & Billie, and Van Helsing. He is the recipient of a Literature Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
