Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks

July 25–July 28, 2018 / City Stage in Polk Bros Park

Join Chicago Shakespeare Theater for one of our city’s favorite summer traditions! Now in its seventh year, the FREE FOR ALL Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks tour heads out for another summer. This free 75-minute abridged production is coming to the City Stage in Polk Bros Park, as well as neighborhood parks across the north, west and south sides of the city.

At each tour location, a specially equipped truck rolls into the park, a stage unfolds, and a company of professional actors shares Shakespeare’s with families and neighbors of all ages.

For the first time since the establishment of the Chicago Shakespeare in the Parks tour in 2012, Artistic Director Barbara Gaines is adapting and staging this production for audiences across Chicago. Gaines brings a vision of merriment to the enchanting story of four young lovers who set out for the forest, in which an amateur theater troupe is rehearsing. When the Fairy Court discovers these mortals in their midst, mischief ensues until dawn.
