Ordinary lives and simple stories are the stock of
Neil Labute's bash which received its Irish
premiere on Wednesday night in Dublin's Gate Theatre.
Hollywood star Jason Patric plays a nameless character
telling the audience about how his family life, recalling
teenage school experiences and Jason O'Mara
(John) and Justine Mitchell (Sue)
reminiscing about their high school romance.
each of these three short stories Iphigenia in
Orem, Medea Redux and A Gaggle of Saints
contain a tortured twist, the flicker switch from
quotidian mundanity to dark tragedy.
character is guilt ridden over his child smothering
