A world-premiere play about the history of soccer in St. Louis.

Written by Benjamin Hochman of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch • Coming SEPTEMBER 2023

Shakespeare in the Streets is a theatrical experience that combines the history of one St. Louis community with a Shakespeare play. Previously explored histories include Old North, Maplewood, the Grove, Cherokee Street, The Ville and Bevo Mill.

This year’s project celebrates the uniting force of soccer in the region and St. Louis’ impact on the sport globally. With a new play inspired by your stories, we will celebrate together with three free performances in fall 2023.
