This international hit is an inspiring musical parody that showcases the funny sides of a woman's "change of life." As four ladies with little in common but a black lace bra meet by chance at a lingerie sale in a department store, they poke fun at their woeful hot flashes, forgetfulness, mood swings, wrinkles, night sweats and chocolate binges. With classic tunes from the '60s, '70s and '80s moving the action along, these diverse women create a sisterhood as they realize that menopause is a shared experience that doesn't have to be suffered in silence.

Reviews & Ratings
Neil LaBute has a reputation for exploring the darker side of life. In New American Theatre Project’s last production, The Shape of Things, LaBute's bleak mind saw human emotions being played with to create an art show; in Bash, he sees matter-of-fact brutality in which ordinary individuals with rather colorless characteristics inflict pain on themselves and others. The show begs the question: What happens when the sin follows you home? Bash is a testament to human nature and its unyielding philosophical belief that "life must go on." What happens in Sin City stays here.

Neil LaBute was born in Detroit, Michigan, and raised in Spokane, Washington. He attended Brigham Young University and did graduate work at the University of Kansas, NYU and the Royal Academy of London. As a playwright and screenwriter, LaBute has been widely celebrated for his edgy and often unsettling renderings of human relationships. Stark cruelty and shockingly honest portrayals of sex and romance also dominate many of his films, including "Your Friends & Neighbors" and "In the Company of Men," the latter of which was adapted from his play of the same title and won Sundance’s Filmmaker’s Trophy in 1997. In 2003, LaBute directed the film version of "The Shape of Things," starring the original theatrical cast, including Rachel Weisz and Paul Rudd.
