The New York City premiere production of bash: latter day plays[sic] with Calista Flockhart, Paul Rudd, and Ron Eldard was just broadcast on Showtime last month. Now the Neil LaBute play is set for its Boston premiere at TheatreZone's Actors Workshop Oct 6-28.
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."
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.
