The Treatment: Neil LaBute on His Play Some Girls

Neil Labute
The Treatment
Host: Elvis Mitchell

You might think it difficult to make fear, weakness bulling a career. Writer-director Neil LaBute (In the Company of Men, Nurse Betty) disagrees with you. He's proved it works in film, on stage and with the West Coast premiere of his new play, Some Girls.

As with much of LaBute's work, Some Girls deals with the sexual politics within a relationship; LaBute discusses how, despite being labeled to the contrary, he's harder on his male characters than female; the influence of growing up with a scary Dad in a small house reading a lot of Harold Pinter; and the differences between working in film and theater.
