Bash by Neil LaBute
October 2 - October 17, 2009
Neil LaBute's "Bash" is a triptych of intense and mesmerizing one-acts depicting the dark heart of ordinary people. In 'Medea Redux,' a woman tells of her complex teenage relationship with her high school English teacher and the tragedy that resulted; in 'A Gaggle of Saints,' a young college couple simultaneously recounts their disparate versions of a trip to New York City that takes a surprising and violent turn; and in 'Iphigenia in Orem,' a Utah businessman confesses the unthinkable and chilling crime his work troubles drove him to at home. Neil LaBute is one of the hottest American playwrights around. The author of "Fat Pig," "The Shape of Things," and the recent Tony-nominated Broadway hit "Reasons to be Pretty," LaBute was called "the best playwright to emerge in the past decade - a genius" by New Yorker magazine.
