 “I had never seen this play performed so I feel very fortunate to have my first performance of it be so brilliantly done...Director Robert Knopf does a fine job with his vision for this show...The cast is fantastic...[an] excellent production.” -Richard Hinojosa,

“Get your shock on.” -Broadway Magazine

“As with many new productions that try to eliminate barriers between actors and audiences, patrons can take in this show from overhead seats or at tables within a few feet of the performers.” -New York Magazine

Now Playing! Tom Noonan and Eastcheap Rep present Neil LaBute’s bash at the Paradise Factory at 64 East 4th Street. The play runs until September 19th, so get your tickets now!

bash features a series of monologues by seemingly common, everyday folks, revealing some particularly memorable and shocking secrets in their lives. Originally released to a great deal of acclaim and controversy (the playwright was even booted out of his church), Eastcheap Rep is proud to revive bash for the first time in New York since its Broadway debut 10 years ago. Directed by Robert Knopf featuring Luke Rosen and Chelsea Lagos and produced by Chris Chaberski and Eastcheap Rep, the 2009 production of bash explores the stark reality underlying LaBute's aggressive language, evoking the most primitive emotions through simple, minimalist speech and movement.

Audiences can choose between two types of seating: tables within a few feet of the performers or seating above them.  For special late night performances, only the 24 seats at tables will be sold, offering audience members an unprecedented “intimate bash” in the company of LaBute’s men and women.
