Weeks after the New York City premiere production of bash: latter day plays[sic] with Calista Flockhart, Paul Rudd, and Ron Eldard was broadcast on the Showtime television network, the Neil LaBute play had its homegrown Boston premiere Oct. 6 at TheatreZone's Actors Workshop and is set to close Oct 28.
bash is a collection of three one-acts about morality that includes Medea Redux - in which a woman talks about her relationship with her junior high school teacher, Iphegenia in Orem - about a man who makes a harrowing confession, and A Gaggle of Saints - about a bunch of young guys who attack a gay man.
LaBute's work is no stranger to the screen. His screenplays “In The Company of Men" and "Your Friends and Neighbors" have both made it to the big screen. He also directed the recent movie, "Nurse Betty." Artistic director Danielle Fauteux Jacques has staged the Boston bash.
For tickets to this bash, at Actors Workshop, 40 Boylston St., in Boston, call (617) 887-2336 or visit them online at www.theatrezone.org.
