Paul Taylor-Mills presents BASH, a new production of Neil LaBute's collection of three darkly brilliant one-act plays, at Barons?Court Theatre through Sunday 17 June. James Le Feuvre and Faye Winter, who both appeared in Michael Grandage's production of Hamlet with Jude Law both in the West End and on Broadway, star under director Olivia Rowe. Opening night is tonight, 6 June at 7.45pm.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, if I don't like what I see I'll murder them all. Revenge, twisted logic and righteousness mix in this paradoxically gleeful look at taboos and murder. Three separate short plays by world renowned playwright Neil LaBute explore whether evil underlines us all, or merely disguises itself frighteningly well in a few.
The three plays - Iphigenia in Orem, A Gaggle of Saints, Media Redux - were originally produced off-Broadway by Stephen Pevner and Eric Krebs at the Douglas Fairbanks Theatre, New York City, in July 1999.
James Le Feuvre's theatre credits include Hamlet (Donmar at Wyndhams and Broadway), Women Beware Women (National Theatre), The Producers (Theatre Royal Drury Lane), A Rude Awakening (New End), The Ark (Arcola). Film: Raphael in God Hates Fags, and Sam in Don't Go There. TV: James recently filmed the lead character in the hugely popular series Locked up Abroad for National Geographic, playing Jeremy Khinoo, who was jailed in Mexico for trying to smuggle prescription drugs into the US using home-made counterfeit money.
