“We are born to do benefits…” (William Shakespeare, Timon of Athens)


We hope you are keeping well, and that you’re surrounded by love during these difficult days. We miss you.

Shakespeare in the Ruins is going through a delicate moment right now. This challenging crisis has forced theatres around the globe to go dark, with productions being cancelled and events postponed. Our fight right now is to remain open while our doors are shut; to remain strong as we navigate this storm of uncertainty, and to remain healthy for many more years into the future. Our deepest wish remains the same: to give you unforgettable experiences through the magic of Shakespeare.

We ask you to please consider a donation – anything helps and every dollar counts! We’d like to continue our work in this great community; reaching our audiences via online tools, protecting our company and preparing it for re-opening our doors – and being here for you, making this time of isolation a little less lonely.

We are your Shakespearean company. We exist for you.

Thank you!
