About the Event
Pivot Theatre is proud to present Naked Stage Readers Theatre's production of 'Courtship' by Steve Penman.
Two elderly gentlemen, one a widower and the other married, meet regularly at “their” bench. They share observations about the world's problems and offer sometimes humorous "solutions". At the same time, they provide real insight into loneliness, aging and relationships. Directed by Bridget Browning.
ABOUT NAKED STAGE READERS THEATRE:
While our name might imply an erotic happening, it’s the stage that’s naked, not the performers. Our performances don't have movement, extensive lighting, sound systems or props. The stage is bare except for actors sitting on stools and music stands holding their scripts. This method has been used for decades, mainly in universities and schools; it also has special appeal to seniors who liken it to old-time radio, where the audience had to listen carefully to fully understand the story.
