EVERYONE HAS A SECRET....
Through its pulsating rock score and emotionally charged story, bare has thrilled and moved audiences around the world. The contemporary cult classic pop opera is set at a Catholic boarding school in the early 2000s.
The students are struggling with religion, sexuality and identity. As they rehearse for a production of Romeo and Juliet, parallels are drawn between the play's star crossed lovers and students Peter and Jason. While Peter is preparing to come out to his mother, Jason fights to keep their relationship a secret in fear of losing his status as a popular athlete. Jason is also being pusued by Ivy, the beautiful but troubled girl with a bad reputation, much to the dislike of his outspoken sister Nadia.
The students find release by delving into the underground party scene and experimenting with it’s associated vices. Provocative, raw and unapologetic in its depiction of how its generation navigates the tightrope between adolescence and adulthood; with a unique sung-through pop score and soul-bearing lyrics, bare explores the dangers of baring your soul, and the consequences of continuing to hide. Victorian professional premiere.
