'BARE' at the Courtyard Theatre, 14th-16th July


Written and performed by Madeleine Dunne, Steffanie Freedoff & Kat Ronson


Nothing is more thrilling and terrifying than completely exposing yourself. Not just baring your flesh, but your fears, secrets, and soul. bare. is an intimate evening of fresh, one-woman performances. These are stories told by women: international stories of sex, fear, love, inspiration, mental illness, strength, despair, independence, vulnerability and everything in-between. 

bare. is an honest sharing of often unspoken but inherently identifiable truths, for all their humour and shade. bare. is a space to unify without judgement; to be a community with strangers. Instead of communicating through cables and wireless signals, bare. invites the audience to explore the answers to their questions and redefine what it means to be bare.


‘IBZ’ is a wild piece penned by Kat Ronson. Sex. Love. Ibiza. Ecstacy. When Girl meets Him, life changes forever. How far will she go for her first love? 

Steffanie Freedoff’s ‘In The Beginning There Was Word’ is a piece of performance poetry about finding the depths of one’s soul at the point of a pen. Grace finds strength, courage, and her right to speak at a TEDtalk in Chicago. 

"What does it sound like to you? Is it loud? Can you outrun it?" Meet Lucy, and the messy line between normality and conformity with ‘Mind the Gap’ written and performed by Madeleine Dunne.
