BAD APPLES Extends Through 2/2 at Atwater Village Theatre

Circle X Theatre Co. has announced that its critically-acclaimed, smash-hit, world premiere musical, Bad Apples, written by Jim Leonard, music and lyrics by Rob Cairns and Beth Thornley, directed by John Langs, choreography by Cassandra Daurden, and musical direction by Rob Cairns and Beth Thornley will be adding eight performances and EXTENDING through Saturday, February 2 at Atwater Village Theatre, 3269 Casitas Ave. in Los Angeles, 90039.

Welcome to Club Abu, the biggest party in Baghdad and the premier location for Iraqi nightlife. You only need to answer the following question to gain entry: "Do you love me enough to torture for me?" Dress code is whatever you got dragged in wearing (or nothing at all). Freedom lovers only, please.

Bad Apples is a world premiere rock musical inspired by the real-life prisoner abuse scandal at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. Bad Apples seeks to answer the simple question: How in God's name did this happen? Two soldiers ended up pregnant by fellow soldier Charles Graner; both women wanted to marry him, competed with each other to win his love, and enthusiastically tortured prisoners together, documenting most of it in pictures that later leaked and shocked the world.

Who were the victims? Who were the villains? Is sadism part of being human? Normal for war? Normal for love? Was Abu really an aberration brought on by a few "Bad Apples" or does it speak to something deeper in our national psyche?

Bad Apples is not a history play. It digs deeper than the facts, exploring a twisted theatrical world inspired by a fictionalized Abu Ghraib.
