The Bench: A Homeless Love Story

$29 - $39

Based on true stories, The Bench, set in urban decay and rubble, explores the emotional heartbreak of five homeless characters and the catastrophic hysteria surrounding AIDs in the 1980's. The sparse set is accented with hand-drawn imagery, from Daphne Arthur's graphic novel adaptation of the play, and audio design is by world re-known composer and multi-instrumentalist Deep Singh. It's a unique and fresh solo theatre piece wherein one actor plays five characters, written in dialogue form, not traditional 'monologue black out, monologue black out' traditional solo theatre form.


Running Time: 65 minutes
