To shake up the usual outdoor theatre fare offered in NYC, Elephant Run District is presenting Brecht in the Park. Included in this are three rarely-performed short plays, two of which required the creation of a special contract from the publishing company Samuel French because they had never been performed in New York City. This imaginative production, directed by Aimee Todoroff, will fuse physical and political theatre, bringing these early 20th century works into the contemporary world of the Occupy Movement, Citizens United, Stop & Frisk actions and Stand Your Ground laws. It will feature masks and puppets created by Joe Osheroff, winner of three New York Innovative Theatre Awards in 2012 for his choreography and movement, mask design, and direction of Homunculus: Reloaded.

An additional performance will take place at the Brecht Forum, corner of West and Bank Streets, on Tuesday, July 23 at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free to all performances. Donations will gladly be accepted. More information at
