Shakespeare on the Steps // “In Love and Death” with Piccolo Spoleto

June 9 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

CLS is honored to partner with CofC’s Department of Theatre and Dance to present its 17th season of Stelle di Domani, their annual Piccolo Spoleto offering. 

Don’t miss this special Shakespearian experience that returns for its second year! Join us on Sunday, June 9th, as we transform our front steps into a stage for a plein air, abbreviated performance of “In Love and Death”. This noteworthy production represents a continuing collaboration between Charleston Library Society’s Special Collections and Igoe Shakespeare Library and the Theatre and Dance Department.

Bring your own chair and all of your friends to experience live theatre during your Second Sunday stroll. We expect a large and lively standing crowd to turn out for this one-of-a-kind event— and hope you’ll join us, too!

Shakespeare on the Steps is a walk-up-and-watch performance that is free and open to the public! Tickets for sale on this page are a suggested donation price with proceeds going to the CofC Department of Theatre and Dance.
