WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
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 1980s. The sparse set is accented with hand-drawn imagery by Daphne Arthur, and the audio design is by world-renowned composer and multi-instrumentalist Deep Singh. The Bench is a unique solo theater piece wherein one actor plays five characters, with speech written as dialogue rather than monologues followed by blackouts.
