bare stage

by Michael Walker

Presented by Festival Theater
South End / BCA Plaza Theaters
2/8/19 - 3/2/19


bare stage centers on the difficulties and pressures faced by two young actresses when they are faced with the choice to accept roles with nudity in a Broadway-bound play, or not work.  How will playing these roles affect their family, friends and lovers? Is the on-stage nudity powerful and critically necessary, or is it added just sensationalism tacked on to increase ticket sales?  Censorship, artistic freedom, exploitation and body-shaming are called into question in this world-premiere drama presented without intermission.

Run time: one hour, 40 minutes, with no intermission.

PLEASE NOTE: There is brief nudity in the show.  Anyone under 16 will not be admitted unless attended by an adult 21 or older.
