The Accidental Shakespeare Company is an ensemble dedicated to bringing you playful productions of classic works.

Accidents are part of the joy of live theatre. The honesty of an unplanned moment can be exciting, hilarious, and even moving. At ASC, we aim to bring the unexpected into each and every one of our performances.

Theatre is an ever-changing art form, and we feel that the best work happens when great performers are given the opportunity to play.

Play on!

Production History

Hit & Run Shakespeare: The Winter's Tale  | Open: 11/24/12 Close: 11/24/12
Prepare yourself for fast-paced, high-stakes bardolatry. In Hit & Run Shakespeare, there is NO director, NO rehearsal, and NO plan: just pure, spontaneous PLAY! Our ensemble of actors will come together, fully memorized and with fully developed characters, to create a one-night-only production of Shakespeare’s THE WINTER'S TALE. A referee will ensure that any mistakes on stage are punished appropriately. You, our audience, supply random objects which the actors must use as props. We believe that the joy of live theater lies in its accidents — and watching actors deal with them creatively. The hilarity, the life, the truth of THE WINTER'S TALE will emerge from this sense of play, and the dynamic it creates with you — our audience! Visit accidentalshakespeare.tumblr.com/hit&run for more information about the ‘Hit & Run’ style and the rules of the game! Come Play With Us!
