To the Artists and Patrons of the Hard Bargain Players,

It with a heavy heart that the Hard Bargain Players will be canceling our 2020 Season. The decision was made by both HBP and the Alice Ferguson Foundation, based on current restrictions state- and countywide. Though we are an outdoor venue, the safety of our volunteers and our audiences is our priority.

However, we would like to continue to provide an outlet for the arts by hosting virtual events (live or pre-recorded) which will feature members of the arts community!

What does that mean?

We want to host free, virtual workshops/tutorials, play readings of original works and classics, performances of original music, art galleries, and more!

If you are a member of the arts community and would like to host a free event, please contact me at hbpartisticdirector@gmail.com.

Bent at Hard Bargain, Aug 9-24

Bent at Hard Bargain, Aug 9-24

BENT
By Martin Sherman
Directed by Matt Jones

‪August 9-24, 2019
Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 pm.

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

Location: Hard Bargain Players.

“Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo, where this month’s paycheck covers last month’s bills, and where Margie Walsh has just been let go again from yet another job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling who’s made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start. But is this apparently self-made man secure enough to face his humble beginnings? Margie is about to risk what little she has left to find out.” –Dramatists Play Service, Inc.
