Bad Apples Musical Co Presented With Circle X Theatre Co. & Arts West says
Welcome to Club Abu, the darkest party in Baghdad. An incendiary rock musical that pulls back the curtain of one of the greatest moral challenges we have faced as a nation and sets it to a wicked irreverent back beat.

Inspired by the real-life prisoner abuse scandal at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, Bad Apples seeks to answer the simple question: How did we let 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? Was Abu really an aberration brought on by a few “bad apples” or does it speak to something deeper in our national psyche? Not a history play, Bad Apples digs deeper than the facts, exploring a twisted theatrical world inspired by a fictionalized Abu Ghraib.

Limited offer! Night club seating with a complimentary beer pitcher is available for $45 to performances of Bad Apples. Call the Ticket Office at 206.292.7676 for details and to reserve your seat at the table!
