Thanks to our amazing actors and happy audiences, OUTSPOKEN: Shakespeare in Shackles had a stupendous opening weekend on Theatre Row!
No surprise. Our cast and director are a rare combination of theatre-trained artists with MFAs from Columbia U, NYU, Rutgers U., Alabama Shakes, Wichita Collegiate, Northwestern U, the Actors Studio, and London’s Old Vic!
OUTSPOKEN features 9 incredible theatre actors – 5 of which are also from the Los Angeles Drama Club: Blaire Baron Larsen, Julia Walker Wyson, Anniwaa Buachie. Kila Packett and director Esdras Toussaint.
This play is a dark comedic farce about some of Shakespeare’s biggest loudmouths together in the Clink. There is much Shakespeare spoken – but the characters speak our language when not re-enacting the crisis that got them here. It is a 75 minute wild ride with prisoners on the edge, yet appropriate for all ages and sensibilities, with a universal theme of speaking out against injustice.
Come enjoy OUTSPOKEN in the intimate Studio C Artists performance space along Hollywood Theatre Row. Live theater. No screens, no phones – what a concept!
The performance dates left are Fridays/Saturdays – 10/2, 10/3, 10/9, 10/10, 10/16, 10/17 – all starting at 8pm.
Be there with shackles on!
