BASH'd! The Gay Rap Opera
NEW YORK  •  The Zipper Factory  •  Ongoing

The award-winning gay rap opera Bash'd, created and performed by Chris Craddock and Nathan Cuckow in the charachters of Feminem & T-Bag, the show features music by Aaron Macri and is directed by Ron Jenkins.

Bash'd chronicles the tale of Jack and Dillon; two star-crossed lovers who must cope with the reality of hatred when one is brutally beaten. Fuelled by the increase of gay bashings that happened during Premier Ralph Klein's refusal to legalize gay marriage in Alberta, Canada, one of the lovers decides to reverse the discrimination and go out and bash innocent heterosexuals. It is told entirely through rap, spoken word and poetry, turning the often-homophobic musical genre on its ear. Even though the topic is serious, the musical is high energy, irreverent, and provocative. Bash'd was a smash hit at the 2007 Toronto International Fringe Festival.
