23-08-2018 12:00:00 26-08-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York Torn Out Theater presents The (Naked) Rover Torn Out Theater is back this summer with another naked play in Prospect Park! They are producing their first ever mixed-gender play, The Rover, by Aphra Behn, who was the English language's first professional female playwright. The Rover is a story of love, rebellion, and self-determination. During Carnival, the world turns upside down. Women become men, servants become masters, and pleasures deemed unattainable the rest of the year blossom in the streets. Against this chaotic backdrop, a chaste noblewoman, a fiery nun-to-be, a disgraced English colonel, a pirate, and a courtesan look for love — or something like it. Mistaken identities, ping-pong repartee, and reversals of fortune abound in this witty, infectious, and shockingly modern play. Torn Out's gender-bending production will make selective use of nudity to explore the play's themes of personal agency, true love, and the roles we play to get what we desire. General Admission seating for The Rover is free, but if you would like to reserve a chair, you can do so online at http://www.tornouttheater.org/chairs Performances are from August 16-26, Thursdays and Fridays at 5:30 and Saturdays and Sunday at 2:00. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=323455 Prospect Park Music Pagoda Prospect Park Music Pagoda
