About Will Kempe’s Players Cooperative
Now in its third season, Will Kempe’s Players Cooperative stages Shakespeare’s plays in a manner that echoes the stagecraft of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. As such, WKP productions tour exclusively, playing everywhere from traditional theaters and outdoor stages to park groves and other “found” spaces. The performers share common space and lighting with the audience, using evocative text, props and scenery to engage the audience directly. WKP productions feature rich costumes, expert swordplay, music, dance, and clear story-telling.
