    The Executors Song

    Missing Persons

    It's hard to imagine the same universe produced two playwrights as seemingly opposed as Neil LaBute and Naomi Wallace. In this corner we have LaBute, a convert to Mormonism and Mametisms, whose three one-act plays just opened under the title Bash. La...

    Circling the Drain
