One touch of nature makes the whole world kin…as we bring Shakespeare to friends everywhere…

Dear Friends,

We are conjuring new adventures in our 17th season. Our first winter production of Love’s Labour’s Lost – a tropical romp of romance, witty repartee, and BIG vocabulary words. This second digital PSIP production is staged by our first directorial team, Irene Alby and Cornel Gabara.

As our company anticipates returning to our beautiful parks in September, we are channeling our energy to provide Shakespeare where you are via live-streamed performances by a cast of eight versatile actors.

It’s wonderfully comforting that Shakespeare’s timeless words can bring us together and speak to our pain, our isolation, our fear during this incredibly difficult time. We can share the joy of experiencing each other’s company, talent, and laughter in our online artistic community. And look to the future, when we will be able to gather in person in our city parks again!

In the meantime, join us for our lively and entertaining BEWARE THE VIBES OF MARCH evening on Twitch–an interactive, improvised Shakespearean-style LIVE performance where the audience becomes directors.

In April, Week of Will returns with a host of online and live digital events. Mrs Shakespeare will be back on Will’s 457th Birthday–April 23.

We depend on your generous support in this difficult time. We won’t stop getting free Shakespeare out to the public – online at the moment and in public when it is safe – and we cannot do it without you! Thank you in sharing in our mission of providing free, excellent and exciting theatre for all.

When I take walks in Frick Park, I am reminded of September – when we gather together to enjoy our exciting, dynamic productions of Shakespeare’s plays in our beautiful city parks. Now, as we prepare to gather online, join us for Love’s Labour’s Lost as we mark our 17th season!

With gratitude,

Jennifer Tober
Founder and Artistic Director
