Description

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.

By Neil LaBute

Directed by Megan Bartle and Will Sturdivant

Cast: Megan Bartle, Johnny Miles, Will Sturdivant

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.
