[Ed. – Just as The Bard intended.]
For an actor, reeling off endless lines of Shakespeare is a demanding job. Shouting it over the din of planes, helicopters and ambulance sirens whizzing past New York’s Central Park is even tougher. Doing it all naked however, in front of hundreds of onlookers – who would do that?
An all-female cast as it turns out. Made up of individual actors as well as members of the Outdoor Co-ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society. They’re currently performing their thoroughly modern version of The Tempest in Central Park.
Surrounded by lush grass and green trees, while the audience settles itself on the ground and on benches at the iconic Summit Rock, a naked Miranda (Marisa Roper) is wandering around her supposed tropical island, picking up sticks and dropping them again.
