THE BED SHOW
Get in bed with us this February in Philadelphia as part of Philly Theatre Week!
Philadelphia newcomer, Sean Pollock, with co-host, Nuria Hunter will cover all things "bed culture:" the history of beds, bed horror stories, the mattress industry to personal relationships to beds, sleep, love, sexuality, and intimacy. Did we mention its performed in an actual bed in someone's apartment? Think of it as the sleepover party you never had. An unforgettable night of intimate storytelling that brings the audience into the experience through a series of different games. Trust us, this is not your mother's talk show.
THE BED SHOW is an immersive site-specific talk show where participation is strongly encouraged! First premiered the summer of 2018 in New York City with Sean Pollock and Jon Schuta, directed by Hana Mastrogiacmo, produced by Alyssa Berdie and Unattended Baggage. In 2019, another rendition of The Bed Show was a part of Title:Point's SalON!: I Am A Beast With Eyes On All Four Sides with Pollock and Emma Howard in Brooklyn, NY.
“We all sleep. We all have lifelong relationships with our beds or where we rest. This is an immersive storytelling sleepover party--part storytelling show, part sleepover, part fun, part serious. Our show is an intimate, one of a kind experience with small audiences packed in a bedroom with a powerful lens into how we see our experiences and relationship to beds, sleep, and intimacy. After a short run in NYC in 2018, I’m psyched to bring this show to Philly and with the help of Nuria, help re-sculpt it and bring it back specifically for theatre week--and hopefully beyond!”
