LaBute's "Bash" Back in California

SANTA ANA, CALIFORNIA -- LDS playwright Neil Labute's trio of plays about Mormons turned bad, "Bash: Latter-day Plays," is being presented by Santa Ana's Hunger Artists Theatre Company. Reviewer Eric Marchese admits that LaBute's work is "not the kind of material mainstream venues would be comfortable with," but says its just right for a small, edgy, storefront troupe. But he adds that while the plays could be seen as an indictment of Mormons, " 'Bash' also rings, though, of the unsettling, unwittingly self-revealing monologue poems of Robert Browning, which places LaBute in the company of literary greatness."

Hunger Artists has the right troupe and venue to deliver the goods on Neil LaBute's chilling set of dramatic monologues.
