From Torn Out Theater which brought us the 2017 nude, all-male production of Hamlet is back this summer and will return to the Prospect Park Pagoda to put on a production, but not clothes, of “The Rover” a 17th century play set in Italy during Carnival, that tells the story of European nobility whose inhibitions are set free behind the safety of masks.
This will be the company’s first mixed-gender and non-Shakespearian production. ,
“The Rover” will run Thursday through Sundays from Aug. 16 until Aug. 26. with weekday performances at 5:30 p.m. and weekend performances at 2 p.m.
No tickets are required for this free production but the company recommends theater-goers arrive 30 minutes before curtain time as seating is first-come-first-served.
Seats on the lawn are free and attendees are welcome to bring picnic blankets and chairs. A limited number of chairs will be available to rent for $7.
