BASH'd! chronicles the tale of a pair of lovers, one of whom is bashed, prompting the other to take revenge. It is told entirely through rap, spoken word and poetry, turning the often homophobic musical genre to our own purpose.

BASH'd! is loosely based on the real life spike in hate crimes in Alberta, Canada during the national debate on equal marriage for gays and lesbians. Since this debate, same sex marriage has been legalized in Canada, despite the fervent protests of the religious right. In America the struggle continues. BASH'd! explores the effect of homophobic violence and the emotions associated with being any marginalized population. Though the topic is serious, the play itself is fast paced, high energy and full of laughs.
