by Neil LaBute
Neil LaBute's Bash is a collection of three darkly brilliant one-act plays.
In 'Medea Redux', a woman tells of her complex and ultimately tragic relationship with her junior high-school English teacher.
In 'Iphigenia in Orem', a Utah businessman confides in a stranger in a Las Vegas hotel room, confessing to an especially chilling crime.
In 'A Gaggle of Saints', a young Mormon couple separately recount the violent events of an anniversary weekend in New York City.
All three are unblinking portraits of the evils that are abroad in everyday life; each is distinguished by the raw and yet lyrical intensity that has become Neil Labute's signature.
