Story

What Is the Story of Bare?
Set at a co-ed Catholic boarding school, Bare tells the story of Peter, an awkward outcast who is having a secret affair with Jason, one of the most popular guys in school. While Peter is dying to make the relationship public, Jason is too concerned about his reputation. When Jason is propositioned by Ivy, a new student with a troubled past, he tries to ignore her advances. But as a series of slip-ups causes his classmates to get suspicious, Jason convinces himself to sleep with Ivy. As the impassioned love triangle spirals out of control, Jason is forced to face who he really is—even if his parents, classmates and teachers refuse to accept him.

Critics' Reviews

"The ever-sharp Missi Pyle ('Charlie and the Chocolate Factory') plays a smart, understanding nun and delivers handily during a hilarious scene where she also channels the Virgin Mary as a nightclub performer."

Review by Tanner Stransky from Entertainment Weekly

"Barrett Wilbert Weed, as Jason’s druggy goth sister, stands out with her honeyed vocals. And Missi Pyle, brings down the house as the Virgin Mary in a glittery nightclub act."

Review by Joe Dziemianowicz from New York Daily News
