Bare Theatre Presents The Leader, inspired by and including the "The Leader" by Eugene Ionesco, directed by G. Todd Buker.
Bare Theatre presents a mix of shorts that portray the role of leaders in society. With one of the most decisive elections in United States history approaching, Bare Theatre uses Eugene Ionesco's 1953 absurdist comedy The Leader as the centerpiece of a collection of pieces to capture the sometimes humorous, sometimes disturbing implications of following a leader. This bizarre story raises questions about human nature and leadership without being specific to time, place, or person. The original collection will feature, in addition to the Ionesco play and other vignettes: clowns performing TSA-style security checkpoints, a brief look at the most impactful leaders in world history, a presentation on "The Anatomy of a Leader," fun with lemmings, and a choreographed game of "king of the hill" with sinister turns.
