Toa Fraser's New Zealand comedy BARE is a hilarious matrix of urban poetry and streetwise lip. Two actors rap and riff on body image, films, takeaway food, graffiti, multiplexes and English literature.

Downstage is proud to present this short season (14 performances only!) of the Silo Theatre production of this NZ classic directed by Oliver Driver with actors Morgana O’Reilly (The Laramie Project) and Curtis Vowell (The Ensemble Project).


Toa Fraser’s poetic vision of NZ is the much-loved and much-celebrated work that first catapulted Auckland’s Silo Theatre into the public eye.

Following its hit debut, BARE toured the country and then went on to international markets in Australia and the UK, including Edinburgh, Sydney and Adelaide. BARE won Best New Play and Best New Playwright at the 1998 Chapman Tripp Awards and launched the career of Toa Fraser, who received the coveted Sunday Star Times Bruce Mason Award in 1999.

The current production, which premiered at Silo in 2007, has the critics raving. .

"An energetic and fervent production." – Theatreview
