Belinda and Cody Phipps appear to be a typical Midwestern couple: teenage sweethearts now married with children and a luxurious home. Typical except that Cody is in almost every respect an outsider – “rich and black and different,” in the words of Belinda, who finds herself attracted to a former classmate. Playwright Neil LaBute unblinkingly challenges the notions of gender, ethnicity and even love itself. Powerful, profane and above all unpredictable, This Is How It Goes is a devastating exploration of the myriad ways in which the wild card of race is played by both black and white in America.
