Playing Bare

This is a damn good play about theatre life and it is side-splittingly funny.

The Montreal Mirror

Witty, prickly and fresh, Playing Bare is a mordant satire on the relationship between theatre and life. An accomplished actress is on the verge of a nervous break down as she directs Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot. In her deranged effort to expose the emptiness of playing fictional characters, she casts the lead roles with a pair of non-actors whose lives mirror those of the characters they play. Her search for the ultimate theatrical experience – life becoming art –­ takes the action in hilarious and insightful directions.

” For all its comedy the play is an eloquent, passionate tribute to actors and it celebrates theatre by paying tribute to Godot, one of its most brilliant gems.” – Allan Fletcher
