Summertime BYOB - Bring Your Own Bard Reading Series

“Summertime” BYOB

“Summertime…and the living is easy.”

That quote is not from Shakespeare, but everything else will be in this evening celebrating the Bard’s evocation of summer.

The Bring Your Own Bard reading series presents an evening of scenes, monologues, and sonnets describing, decrying, delighting in, despairing of all things summer on Thursday, July 29, 2010, 7:00 PM at the Te Café in Squirrel Hill. BYOB is an informal scene night where professional actors and non-actors alike take a crack at their favorite Shakespeare pieces. Extra readings will be on hand in case last minute inspiration strikes. BYOB is a fundraiser for PSIP, Pittsburgh’s only theater offering free Shakespeare performances in city parks.

Suggested tax-deductible donation is $10 at the door. Readers and audience members alike are encouraged to bring copies of their favorite Shakespeare plays and join in the reading of sonnets, scenes, and songs. Fun for the whole family. (Kids are welcome).
