On Location

When working On Location, Off Road creates live theatre productions for a specific public spaces, drawing on site specific theatre practices, promenade, and immersive theatre methods in order to interrogate and disrupt the Shakespeare in the Park norms that do not serve the play, audience, or space. We prioritize creating work for public spaces that are outdoor, accessible, and underutilized as a performance venue for live theatre; we  are always seeking to explore the ways in which the space and play might inform, illuminate and inspire the other, delighting our audience and deepening their engagement to the entire theatrical event.

by  William  Shakespeare
July/August  2016

A romping production that roamed and rambled with our audience through the wilds of Ravenna Park and deep into Shakespeare's silly, raucous, and romantic dream.

ROMEO & JULIET

by  William  Shakespeare
July  2017

A violent delight tumbling toward a violent end, this production was a dangerous, sexy, and heartbreaking race through the sprawling red brick of UW’s Red Square with Shakespeare’s star cross'd lovers.
