We all wear masks—at work, at home, at the club or on the street, to ignore the homeless or to keep peace when in-laws visit; always the Mask is there. From abandonment to abuse, to addiction and isolation, to homelessness and dereliction, whatever our struggles, we are never alone. We can peel back the layers, UnMask, and share our humanity. Playing all roles himself, Curtis Drake Shepard presents portraits of eight characters whose stories are told with humor, compassion, and brutal honesty. Shepard has performed UnMasked many times at various venues, including the Chicago Fringe Festival and Cincinnati Fringe Festival. An extraordinary actor, writer, spoken word artist and story-teller, Shepard has been delighting audiences in the greater Cincinnati, Ohio area for the past twenty-eight years with his unique brand of dramatic story-telling.
