Picnic next to the Old Zoo in Griffith Park while enjoying strong productions of ye olde Bard!
Independent Shakespeare Company has presented free Shakespeare performances under the stars in Griffith Park for ten years. Featuring equity performers in strong, physical, clever productions, the shows often begin with dance and other presentations. This season, they’re alternating between As You Like it and Macbeth. Feel free to bring a picnic and enjoy the remnants of the old zoo while the evening smells of California sage and other mountain scents chase away the city. It gets chilly up there as the sun sets, so bring a honey or a bottle to cling to while the Bard reveals all of our human foibles and glories.
