Shakespeare on Politics at February's Bring Your Own Bard

Four rivals battle to lead the rebellion while the current ruler waits in the wings, gathering his forces. The current political campaign or a Shakespearean play? You decide when Pittsburgh Shakespeare in the Parks' BYOB ("Bring Your Own Bard") highlights "Shakespeare on Politics" on Monday, February 27 at 7:30 pm at The Te Cafe in Squirrel Hill. "Shakespeare on Politics" is an evening of favorite scenes and monologues from Shakespeare's greatest plays to his obscure ones! From King Henry V to King John, Shakespeare had a lot to say about politics and government. But would he have been an Inssurectionist or a Party loyalist?

PSIP’s Bring Your Own Bard is an informal scene night in which professional actors and non-actors alike take a crack at their favorite Shakespeare pieces. Readers and audience members are encouraged to bring along their favorite Shakespeare monologue, scene, sonnet or song ready to read, or just come to listen and enjoy. Extra readings will be on hand in case last minute inspiration strikes. A tax-deductible donation is suggested at the door.

Doors open at 7:15 PM, readings begin at 7:30 PM. Anyone interested in reading should contact, or visit us on Facebook at Pittsburgh Shakespeare in the Parks.

BYOB will continue through the spring with a different theme each month.
