Iron Crow Theatre presents mythology-inspired 'Bareback Ink'

With a loaded title and a heavy foot in ancient Greek mythology, Bob Bartlett's new play "Bareback Ink" offers an intriguing take on sexual attraction and coercion, genuine and forced relationships, alienation and fear.

Iron Crow Theatre Company has given the work a tense, thoughtful staging at JHU's tucked-away
Swirnow Theatre, directed by Ryan Clark and designed by Heather Mork.

It may not persuade you that Bartlett has penned a masterpiece, but the combination of solid acting and production values (most notably the atmospheric contributions from lighting designer Alec Lawson and sound designer Jessye Black) gives the material a boost.
