THE BENCH, A HOMELESS LOVE STORY
Inspired by Real People and True Stories
Written and performed by Robert Galinsky
Directed by Jay O. Sanders

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, from Daphne Arthur's graphic novel adaptation of the play, and audio design is by world renowned composer and multi-instrumentalist Deep Singh
