With the success of has first two films, In The Company of Men and Your Friends and Neighbors, writer-director Neil LaBute has been hailed as a first-rate dramatic talent with a caustic wit reminiscent of Stanley Kubrick basic collection of three stunning one-act plays that mark LaBute's return to the New York stage after ten years -- forms a trio of unforgettable personal accounts: in Medea Redux, a woman cells of her complex and ultimately tragic relationship with her grade school English teacher: in Iphigenia in Orem, a Utah businessman confides in a stranger in a Las Vegas hotel room, confessing a most chilling crime; and in A Gaggle of Saints, a young Mormon couple separately recounts the violent events of an anniversary weekend in New York City. All three are unblinking portraits of the complexities of evil in everyday life, exhibiting this writer-director's raw lyrical intensity.

Review: Bash

User Review  - Thomas - Goodreads

Neil LaBute is my not just my favorite playwright - he is one of my favorite writers. This set of plays was recommended to me by a writing professor and being the first LaBute I ever read it had a big effect on me - and probably will on you too. Read full review

Review: Bash

User Review  - Jon - Goodreads

3 short plays, all monologues (even the section with two speakers). They're all essentially retellings of sensational news headlines. Read full review
