BYOB – “Bring Your Own Bard” is Pittsburgh Shakespeare in the Parks’ informal, no pressure ‘scene night’ in which professional actors and non-actors alike take a crack at their favorite Shakespeare pieces. Participants are encouraged to bring along a piece ready to read, jump into a scene already prepared, or just listen and drink tea. Extra readings will be on hand in case last-minute inspiration strikes. All ages welcome. Beverages and light fare will be available for purchase.

Doors open at 7:15 PM, readings begin at 7:30 PM. Suggested $10 donation at the door to support free Shakespeare in the Steel City. Those interested in reading should contact or 412.521.6406, or visit us on Facebook at Pittsburgh Shakespeare in the Parks.

All performances FREE to the public!

Artistic Director Jennifer Tober 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 10th season this year, PSIP serves up As You Like It, (reprising our inaugural 2005 production), featuring Artistic Director Jennifer Tober as Rosalind and playing free to the public in Pittsburgh city parks in September.
