Shakespeare on Demand with the Knighthorse Theatre Company
Knighthorse specializes in creating original adaptions of Shakespeare: one or two actors on a bare stage with simple costumes and few props – playing ALL the parts. We take Shakespeare’s 400 year-old text and massage it to create something new. While his words and characters remain essentially unchanged, in our very capable and respectful hands, his plays get a mini-makeover in order to facilitate this minimalistic and highly imaginative delivery.
This event is part of our Spring in to Summer with Shakespeare series!
All the library’s a stage! April is the Bard’s birthday month, and the Brookline Public Library is celebrating with a host of presentations, interactive performances, and films. The kickoff event, on April 2 at 1 PM, is an interactive show in the Brookline Village Library by the Knighthorse Theatre Company—with plays suggested by the audience and roles for the entire family. Subsequent events include scenes from Julius Caesar offered by the Commonwealth Shakespeare Company (April 25), the Boston Theater Company Teen Touring Troupe’s interpretation of Much Ado about Nothing (May 7) and, later in the spring and summer, several films and two Commonwealth Shakespeare Company performances held on the Brookline Village library lawn! Please follow the links for further details. All events are free and open to the public, and are supported by the Staff Programming Committee and the Trustees of the Brookline Library.Add to Google Calendar
