Naked Shakespeare

MISSION

Naked Shakespeare is Acorn Productions’ acting ensemble dedicated to presenting the works of the Bard in non-traditional venues without sets, lights, and with minimal costumes, in a style that hearkens back to the manner in which Shakespeare’s plays were originally performed. The ensemble participates in ongoing training sessions that involve voice, body and text in order to assist them in speaking the text in an embodied and authentic way.  Naked Shakespeare performances are designed to be accessible to all audience members, even those that are not familiar with his work. The ambiance and performance style encourage an intimate relationship between actor and audience that allows the language to take center stage.
