Pittsburgh Shakespeare in the Parks celebrates 11 seasons of bringing FREE Shakespeare plays to the Steel City! All performances FREE to the public!

Pittsburgh Shakespeare in the Parks is the city’s only outdoor Shakespeare company and has been offering free productions in city parks since 2005. In 2013, PSIP’s Romeo & Juliet, directed by Helen M. Meade, played to over 1,000 patrons over four September weekends. Celebrating our 11th season in 2014, PSIP served up As You Like It, (reprising our inaugural 2005 production), featuring Artistic Director Jennifer Tober as Rosalind. Next up: King Lear, playing free to the public in Pittsburgh city parks in September 2015.
