“A stark, hilarious, pathetic, outre and grotesque pastiche… amazing and chilling.” – Theater Pizzazz

“Ortonesque … hilariously delivered in all of its wicked rhythmic glory…adeptly constructed and flavorfully written.” –

“There’s far more to BLEACH than sensationalism…a compelling reflection on the long-term effect of compromised principles, and a depiction of what happens when one submits to ‘anything and everything’ for material gain.” -- OffOffOnline

“BLEACH may well be the most fitting gay theatre piece for our time.” – Theater Is Easy

“A surprisingly thoughtful and intriguing play.” – Front Mezz Junkies

Spin Cycle presents the US Premiere of BLEACH by Dan Ireland-Reeves for limited Off-Broadway engagement. This award-winning underground hit, seen throughout the UK as well as in Paris, Stockholm, Amsterdam and Dublin, makes its US premiere in an intimate, immersive production performed for an audience of 10. Directed by Zack Carey, the site-specific production stars Eamon Yates, David Gow and Brendan George, who share the role of Tyler, a young man trying to find his way while paying the rent in NYC. Audiences are invited to join Tyler at Tyler’s Basement in Bushwick, Brooklyn for this dark and humorous look at sex, violence, and city living.

BLEACH centers on Tyler, a twenty-four-year-old who sells his body on a nightly basis. But on a regular working night, things are about to spiral out of control leaving Tyler questioning whether living in the city is really worth the price of rent.
