Bent, set within the iron gates of the Dachau concentration camp during the Holocaust, begins with prisoners Max and Horst meeting each other for the first time. The two gay men are imprisoned, but the couple soon falls in love. Though they never touch each other, their passion forms a bond that comes to defy the despair and death that surrounds them on all sides. The Candid Theater Company has earned a reputation for tough, riveting dramas, and Bent promises to be no different. Buy extra Groupons and invite along some thought-provoking friends for after-show coffee and conversation.
The Candid Theater Company
The mission is in the name: since its founding in 1998, The Candid Theater Company has focused on staging dramas that address universal human experiences with unflinching honesty. That goal is enacted through newly developed plays, as well as dynamic productions of existing works. And, believing "that theatre and all the arts should be accessible to everyone," the company stages those plays at an eclectic variety of venues—their portable fourth wall has been raised at bars, churches, and prisons. It's an unconventional approach that has won the group plenty of praise from audiences and critics alike.
