Connections: Cast members of "BARE" on sexual identity in 2021


A local production about sexual identity and religion is back by popular demand. We talk with cast members of OFC Creations' production of "BARE". The pop opera tells the story of a Catholic school boy who is in love with his roommate, and both of their struggles with coming out.

Cast members have shared their perspectives during talkbacks after the performances. We've invited them to continue the conversation on Connections. Our guests:

  • Eric Johnson, director/producer of BARE, and founding executive director of OFC Creations Theatre Center
  • Jack Mountain, cast member playing Lucas
  • Evan Williams, cast member playing Jason
  • Callan Comeau, cast member playing Matt
