The award-winning Brooklyn theatre company, Smith Street Stage, returns to Carroll Park for its eighth year of free outdoor Shakespeare-under-the-stars. This summer’s production will be Richard III, and all tickets are free, no reservation required.

Richard III tells the story of a country in turmoil and a madman lusting for power. As the ruthless and charismatic Richard claws his way to the throne, a nation is forced to the breaking point in this chilling tale of a tyrant, his enablers, and those who attempt to resist.

The stage will be set at the east end of Brooklyn’s beautiful Carroll Park, along Smith Street.  Ground seating is open to the public, as well as a limited number of chairs. Many theatre-goers bring picnic blankets, some bring chairs of their own. For more information, visit

Dates: June 7-25, Wednesdays through Sundays.
Time: All performances are at 7:30pm
Location: Carroll Park, Brooklyn.

All tickets free.
