Through its pulsating rock score and emotionally charged story, “Bare” has thrilled and moved audiences around the world since its first staging in Los Angeles over a decade ago.
Bare is a coming-of-age story of a group of high school seniors at a co-ed Catholic boarding school, with each struggling to define themselves in the face of their relationships, sexuality, and religion. As they search to come to terms with who they are — and who the world thinks they should be — they seek answers from their church, their friends, and, ultimately, from within themselves. A story of discovery, acceptance and love, the storyline of Bare involves a clandestine relationship between two young men who are roommates, along with a few of their close friends. As these characters navigate adolescence, we see the consequences of secrecy unravel though their eyes and those around them.
