Welcome to Pittsburgh Shakespeare in the Parks


keeps Shakespeare free for all

From Founding Artistic Director Jennifer Tober:

Thank you for your support for 17 years of FREE Shakespeare in our city and county parks! Your generous donations help us bring accessible, free theatre to all and last year, helped PSIP sustain through a very challenging period.

PSIP broke barriers with our 2021 all-female HAMLET, directed by Karen Gilmer, and looks ahead to bring you “The Compleat Works of William Shakespeare, Abridged” this Winter (in a (fun, and warm,) indoor location, TBA).

Thank you for believing in the power of art and Shakespeare to entertain, educate, transform lives, and bring communities together in our beautiful parks and outdoor environs. We couldn’t do it without YOU!

Happy holidays and best wishes,

Jennifer Tober
PSIP Founding Artistic Director
