Storyline

A collection of three dark one-act plays, "iphigenia in orem", "a gaggle of saints", and "medea redux". Each play is an exploration of the complexities of evil in everyday life, and two of the works have direct Greek influence, specifically that of Euripides. "Bash" is a serious and absorbing work of theatre. It has been running since 1999 on stages around the U.S. and was filmed for Showtime in 2000. Written by Ulf Kjell Gür

Trivia

A filmed version of a stage performance of Neil LaBute's three one-actors, in which Mormons can be counted on to behave badly. The tension in LaBute's work, which often makes people awfully uncomfortable, comes from the matter-of-fact presentation of horrific material. The characters, like LaBute, are Mormons, and they speak, with one exception, in confident, sunny tones. See more »

Four Stars, 10/10, One of the Great Plays!
31 July 2001 | by Eight TwoSee all my reviews

Bash is the sort of thing that causes me to lose all analytical abilities. It's so good that my prose breaks down into nothing but gushing. The acting by Calista Flockhart, Paul Rudd, and Ron Eldard gives the stories honest-to-goodness LIFE and it stays with you for days. Neil LaBute masters the form of the one-act, three times over. "Latterday Plays" is a brutally tragic masterpiece, LaBute's magnum opus, and one of the greatest plays I've ever seen.
