A World Premiere produced by Circle X Theatre Co.


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.


Featuring James Black, Kate Morgan Chadwick, Meghan McDonough, Mueen Jahan, Larry Clarke, Mapuana Makia, Anthony Manough, Ian Merrigan, Lina Patel, Sean Spann and Lauren Hillman


Bad Apples is a new rock musical that follows three characters inspired by the three National Guard soldiers behind the atrocities at Abu Ghraib prison in 2003/2004. Jim Leonard has created a compelling, jarring, beautiful and heartbreaking story that asks how this tragedy came to be. Who were the victims? Who were the villains? Is sadism part of being human? Was Abu really an aberration brought on by a few "bad apples?"
