Thursday and Friday performances will begin at 8 p.m., and the Saturday show will begin at 6:00 p.m. with a CITY SC watch party to follow.

Shakespeare in the Streets will step outside its traditional neighborhood setting to celebrate the uniting force of soccer in the region and across the globe. Written by Ben Hochman, award-winning St. Louis Post-Dispatch sports columnist, this world premiere play  “Shakespeare in the Streets: The Game’s Afoot” will take local stories and weave them into a brand new adaptation of Shakespeare’s Henriad. 

The three-night celebration will take place on Olive Street near the intersection of 22nd in Downtown St. Louis on September 14, 15 and 16. The Festival has opened up its story collection to members of the public and seeks memories from all across the region at all levels of play or fans of the sport.


  • ASL interpretations will be provided on Thursday, September 14
  • Audio descriptions by Mind’s Eye Radio will be available on Friday, September 15.
