In their spare time three vigilantes, childhood friends, enjoy patrolling the U.S./Mexican border. But these youths soon learn that even the most guarded borders are permeable. When the lines between fantasy and reality become dangerously blurred, these young men are forced to decide what it means to be an American, and who has the right to belong.

Location: Hard Bargain Players.

“Bent is a story of living versus survival. It concerns Max, a gay ‘wheeler-dealer’ who leads a dissolute life of drink, drugs, and sporadic sex in prewar Berlin. One night he and his lover Rudy pick up the wrong man–someone who’s on the Nazi’s wanted list. Max and Rudy are forced to flee Berlin and live underground. Ultimately they are arrested, and sent to Dachau. En route, Rudy is murdered, but Max survives with the help of a ‘pink triangle’ prisoner, Horst. Once in Dachau, Max makes a deal to wear a Jewish star, therefore avoiding the pink triangle, the badge of the ‘lowest,’ the homosexual. He arranges for Horst to be on his work detail, doing pointless and exhausting–but not dangerous–labor. As time goes by, they fall in love. They become lovers through their imagination, and through their words. When Horst is threatened, Max understands, at last, that life is more than mere survival.” – Mad Stage

Tickets for Hard Bargain Players performances are $12 for adults, $10 for students, seniors and members of the Alice Ferguson Foundation.
