Naked Shakespeare Presents OATH BREAKERS
by BWW News Desk - Nov 21, 2016

Whether it be in love or war, Shakespeare's characters will promise the moon, and in their next breath take it back again. Audience members are invited to decide for themselves whether karmic justice is served when notable liars in the canon go back on their sworn words. Drawn from several plays, this Naked Shakespeare production brings together a collection of characters notoriously bending and twisting their oaths in order to suit their own personal needs. Director Michael Levine intertwines text selections from three tragedies and one comedy in this fast-moving evening of entertainment in which characters are literally shackled by their words by hooded figures moving about a shadowy dungeon-like world. Eight actors play multiple characters in an evening that visually demonstrates the rewards offered by those who are untrue. 'Oath Breakers' performs twice on Friday and Saturday on the first weekend in December in the Ballroom at Mechanics Hall. Both performances begin at 7pm. The First Friday performance is free, and Saturday's show is $10 for all ages. Visit Acorn's website at www.acorn-productions.org for more information or to order tickets. (more...)
