We are so pleased to say that we have a serious hit on our hands with our new show Blaire Baron Larsen’s OUTSPOKEN: Shakespeare In Shackles! Audiences have responded and the buzz is really good on this very clever dark comedy. The previous two weekends, we SOLD OUT both Friday and Saturday night performances – and with four shows remaining (this weekend and next), tickets are going quickly… there are not a ton of seats left for the rest of the performances. So, if you were hoping to catch this great production, get your tickets now while they’re still available.
Join us this weekend for our next performances:
Friday, October 9th @ 8PM
Saturday, October 10th @ 8PM
What happens when you take some of Shakespeare’s most gregarious characters – and put them all in the same prison together – fighting for their lives?
OUTSPOKEN has – with the notorious London prison, The Clink, as the backdrop of its world – brought in a variety of Shakespeare characters from the Canon (crossing the time/space continuum) to explore themes of classism and oppression – while using humor, compassion and camaraderie. Each character grows to understand their fellow prisoners as they re-enact the defining moment (in the actual Shakespeare play) that put them here – usually because they were too… outspoken.
