THE BED EXPERIMENT ONE

World Premiere BACA Downtown NY, 1987

Synopsis

Witness as the covers are pulled back to reveal the rites and rituals of the untamable Homo Sapiens in its favorite nesting place -- a giant bed! Like a bizarre nature documentary THE BED EXPERIMENT tracks four males and four females, who while confronting their deepest fears and desires, balance the witty and weird against the painfully true to life.

"a taut, wry beautifully made work" Deborah Jowitt, Village Voice
