... in an article entitled The We Players Bring Theater to State and National Parks: All the world's a stage. This piece will be printed in the magazine's November/ December issue and is already online here.
“Performing plays in outdoor venues is nothing new. We Players, however, has taken the tradition of alfresco theater in a new and ambitious direction by using national and state parks as the stage itself. The theater group's productions transform park settings into scenes, creating theatergoing experiences that blend art, history, and landscape…” writes Jeff Greenwald, describing our company’s history, highlighting several key productions, and detailing our exciting upcoming plans.
We are also proud to announce that Mother Lear has been chosen as a Theatre Bay Area Awards Recommended Production.
This distinction is awarded to pieces that have been deemed outstanding by the community while a production is still performing. Mother Lear will be performed in McLaren Park on October 28th and 29th, and private residential venues in the bay area through November 4th.
We Players is thrilled to announce that it has been named as one of seven companies around the world creating groundbreaking immersive theatre
"The brainchild of artistic director Ava Roy, We Players was founded in 2000 out of Stanford University. This Bay Area-based company produces classical works in site-specific settings, drawing on the energy of the natural environment to break down barriers between language and audience. Drawing on the fundamental philosophies of “place,” “choice” (each audience member determines his own vantage point), “movement” (the audience follows the action throughout the space) and “community,” We Players sheds innovative light on very old works." — KC Wright
