The Bench set in urban decay and rubble, explores the emotional heartbreak of five homeless characters and the catastrophic hysteria surrounding AIDs in the 1980's. The sparse set is spectacularly integrated with beautiful graphic novel art projections, from Daphne Arthur's adaptation of the play, and is scored live by world re-known composer and multi-instrumentalist Deep Singh. Audiences will also be treated to delicious Valentine's Day sweets, before and after the show, provided by Chef Danielle. “Galinsky effortlessly assumes the bodies and voices of his characters, instantly transforming from one to the next from monologue to dialogue — it is really quite extraordinary. ” (Backstage) It’s a unique and fresh blending of solo theatre, with the Japanese Benshi storytelling, and graphic novelization.
