Neil Labute's Bash is a collection of three darkly brilliant one-act plays. In "Medea Redux", a woman tells of her complex and ultimately tragic relationship with her junior high-school English teacher. In "Iphigenia in Orem", a Utah businessman confides in a stranger in a Las Vegas hotel room, confessing to an especially chilling crime. In a "Gaggle of Saints", a young couple separately recount the violent events of an anniversary weekend in New York City. All three are unblinking portraits of the evils that are abroad in everyday life; each is distinguished by the raw and yet lyrical intensity that has become Neil Labute's signature.

Neil Labute (Playwright) burst onto the film making scene at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival with his feature debut, In the Company of Men. The film went on to win the Filmmaker Trophy at the festival, as well as the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best First Feature. In addition to Sundance, it screened at the Cannes, Edinburgh, and Deauville Film Festivals and won two Independent Spirit Awards. Following on the success of In the Company of Men, LaBute continued to push boundaries on screen and stage and has established himself as both a leading playwright and film writer/director. Among his films are Your Friends and Neighbors, Nurse Betty, The Shape of Things, Lakeview Terrace, Some Velvet Morning and the short films sexting and BFF. His most recent feature film is Dirty Weekend, starring Matthew Broderick and Alice Eve. It is currently in post-production and will premiere fall of 2014. LaBute’s plays have been Tony and Olivier Award nominated and staged throughout the world. They include bash: latter-day plays, The Shape of Things, The Mercy Seat, The Distance From Here, Autobahn, Fat Pig, Some Girl(s), This Is How It Goes, Wrecks, Filthy Talk for Troubled Times, In a Dark Dark House, reasons to be pretty (Tony Award nominated for Best Play), The Break of Noon, In A Forest, Dark And Deep, Reasons to Be Happy and the forthcoming MCC premiere The Money Shot. LaBute is also the author of Seconds of Pleasure, a collection of short fiction which was published by Grove Atlantic.

BASH directed by the company's Artistic Director, Frank Licato, promises to be an outstanding and memorable night of theater.
