Neil LaBute's first published work, Bash, is the story of ordinary people hiding a monstrous secret. This trio of unforgettable personal accounts resulted in LaBute's excommunication from the Mormon Church. In "iphigenia in orem," a Utah businessman confides in a stranger in a hotel room, confessing a most chilling crime.
In "a gaggle of saints," a young Mormon couple separately recounts the violent events of an anniversary weekend in New York City.
In "medea redux," a woman tells of her complex and ultimately tragic relationship with her junior high school English teacher.
