Muttertung Theatre is a co-op formed by three established stage professionals, Kevin Kruchkywich, Rylan Wilkie and Alison Darcy. The Mutts are hitting the stage with an intriguing challenge, Neil LaBute's BASH: Latterday Plays, in one of Montreal’s most exciting new theatre spaces, Theatre Ste. Catherine. A unique occasion to discover how dark the human heart can get, this compelling production promises to rivet audiences to their seats with its detailed and subtle narratives about casual malevolence.
BASH: Latterday Plays is a collection of three darkly brilliant one-act pieces that form a trio of unforgettable personal accounts. It encapsulates the "matter-of-fact brutality", as LaBute puts it, in which people commit extraordinary evils for, ultimately, very ordinary reasons.
Neil LaBute is an American playwright and director known for his forays into atrocity, which he considers "the new black." Under his scrutiny, the layers of protection of the human psyche are slowly peeled to uncover the falsehood upon which it is carefully built. His works include movies such as In the Company of Men, The Shape of Things and Your Friends and Neighbors, three tales about apparently ordinary people who slowly reveal their chillingly monstrous inner selves.
