Two outdoor theater productions are just starting up, and both are free to the public.

One performance is a series of three short Bertolt Brecht plays, performed by the Elephant Run District company at the southeast corner of the Great Hill in Central Park (West side of the park between 103rd and 107th).

“This imaginative production, directed by Aimee Todoroff, will fuse physical and political theatre, bringing these early 20th century works into the contemporary world of the Occupy Movement, Citizens United, Stop & Frisk actions and Stand Your Ground laws. It will feature masks and puppets created by Joe Osheroff, winner of three New York Innovative Theatre Awards in 2012 for his choreography and movement, mask design, and direction of Homunculus: Reloaded.”

Performances will be held from July 6 to July 26 on Saturday and Sundays at 4 p.m. Donations will be accepted, but there is no charge.

Also this month, the Hudson Warehouse presents King Lear at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument at 89th street in Riverside Park. You know King Lear, it’s the one about the wacky dad and his three difficult daughters. Oh, wait, it’s not a comedy? Anyway, go see it. It will be playing Thursday through Sunday at 6:30 all month.
