Open Air Summer Rep: The Rover by Aphra Behn


The Rover is the most popular play by the first female professional writer in England, Aphra Behn, a 17th-century contemporary of Molière. Set in Italy during the chaotic misrule of carnival time, the comedic play explores issues of love, deception and the excesses of passion. Our production is a brand new edit/adaptation by Glenn Hergenhahn-Zhao, performed by the teenage students of our Summer Acting Intensive, and performed outdoors in the amphitheater at Maritime Heritage Park as part of our Open Air Summer Rep. All performances are free to the public. A pre-show opening reception will be held at 6 pm on Thursday, August 23rd to benefit the Open Air Summer Rep, Sylvia Center’s program of free theater in the park.
