Prospect Park Music Pagoda


A story of love, rebellion, and self-determination. From England's first professional female playwright.

During Carnival, the world turns upside down. Women become men, servants become masters, and pleasures deemed unattainable the rest of the year blossom in the streets. Against this chaotic backdrop, a chaste noblewoman, a fiery nun-to-be, a disgraced English colonel, a pirate, and a courtesan look for love — or something like it. Mistaken identities, ping-pong repartee, and reversals of fortune abound in this witty, infectious, and shockingly modern play.

Torn Out's gender-bending production will make selective use of nudity to explore the play's themes of personal agency, true love, and the roles we play to get what we desire.
