“...i’ll tell it once. one time because it deserves to be told, and then never again. fair enough?”
Three plays. Three violent crimes. Three victims. Or is it more? A man in a plain suit confesses the tragic results of a friend’s practical joke to a stranger in a hotel room. A young woman in an interrogation room describes her relationship as a 13 year-old with her high school teacher and the consequences it had for them both. A young couple recall a memorable high school reunion, but end up telling chillingly different stories.
Neil LaBute’s collection of short plays ‘bash’ is an uncompromising dive into the darkest recesses of the human psyche and the evils that lurk just under the surface of everyday life. It is raw, unflinching and mesmerising. What exactly does it take to kill?
