Plays For Outdoor Performance

Planning a performance outside? A play with an outdoor setting is a great way to make your venue a part of the story, inviting your audience into the world of your play even as you bring theater out into the open air. Explore plays that take place in bustling parks, eerie forests, playing fields, and magical gardens, and discover endless opportunities for outdoor performance.
