Community Players’ ‘BASH’ an Unsettling Look at Violence
By Reading Eagle, Pa.
Jul. 31--Reading Community Players will stage "BASH," a series of short one-act plays by Neil LaBute, this weekend and next at the group's playhouse at 403 N. 11th St.
"BASH" opened off-Broadway in 2000 with a cast that included Calista Flockhart, Paul Rudd and Ron Eldard. It presents a chilling look into the lives of ordinary people committing horrifi c crimes.
In "Iphigenia in Orem," a business and family man confesses a most disturbing crime to a stranger in a hotel room.
In "A Gaggle of Saints," a Mormon couple gives separate accounts of a violent weekend during an anniversary getaway to New York City.
And "Medea Redux" has a woman recounting an unsettling relationship with her grade-school English teacher.
Josh Austin makes his Community Players directing debut, leading a cast that features Josh Rambo, Jeff Thomas, Shelley Waszk and Melissa Wagner.
Due to mature themes, it is not recommended for anyone under 18.
Show times are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays through Aug. 10.
Tickets cost $15 for adults, $10 for seniors (over 65) and $8 for students.
