Bare is a pulsating, contemporary rock musical. Bare follows a group of students at a Catholic boarding school as they grapple with issues of sexuality, identity, and being their truest selves. Peter and Jason are in love, but Jason -- a popular athlete with very conservative and well-connected parents -- fears coming out. Jason's sister Nadia, struggles with self-image issues about her weight and is contemptuous of Ivy, a beautiful girl with a questionable reputation. Matt, always second to anything Jason succeeds at, is not-so-secretly in love with Ivy. During the last months at St. Cecilias, tensions flare, self-doubt simmers, and God’s path seems even more difficult to bare.
