Sappy Shakespeare - Not Your Usual Bard

Calling all drama queens, poetic waxers, over-the-toppers, and melodramatic types for a night of sappy Shakespeare. 

Bring your favorite Shakespeare monologue, scene or sonnet. Bring the histrionics, bring the tissues.  Leave the subtlety at home.

 BYOB ("Bring Your Own Bard") is Pittsburgh Shakespeare in the Parks’ informal scene night in which professional actors and non-actors alike take a crack at their favorite Shakespeare pieces in a light-hearted competition.

BYOB takes place at the Te CafĂ©, 2000 Murray Ave. (at Beacon Ave) in Squirrel Hill. Doors open at 7:15 PM, readings begin at 7:30 PM.  Suggested $10 donation at the door.

BYOB.  For those who really want to read Shakespeare out loud and not worry about feeling stupid. 
All ages and levels of experience welcome to read or listen. Kids are welcome. Beverages and light fare available for purchase.

 All proceeds benefit PSIP’s Fall 2017 free production of HENRY V.directed by Alan Irvine.

 Shakespeare Slam takes place the last Monday of every month from February-May.
Anyone interested in reading should contact BYOB@pittsburghshakespeare.com, 412.521.6406, or visit us on Facebook at Pittsburgh Shakespeare in the Parks.  All proceeds support FREE Shakespeare in the Steel City.


PITTSBURGH SHAKESPEARE IN THE PARKS is the city’s outdoor Shakespeare company and has been offering free Shakespeare productions in city parks since 2005.  Now in its 13th season, PSIP has entertained thousands of patrons in city parks since its inception.
