Overview

FREE Theatre Under the Stars! It happens this July!

Iowa Shakespeare FREE picnic-friendly summer comedy show on the ROOFTOP of the Des Moines Social Club - Don't miss it! Can't make it to Scotland's world-famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival this year? We’ve got thee covered!

This summer only, you can get a FREE slice of the world's largest and edgiest theatre arts festival right here in Des Moines! The Iowa Shakespeare Experience and the Des Moines Social Club will co-produce “Lady Macbeth and Her Pal, Megan” downtown—under the stars— on the roof of Social Club from Sunday July 9 through Wednesday July 12. [Monday July 10 reserved as a rain date.]

This funny, PG13, one-woman show stars Iowa’s gifted comedian/playwright, Megan Gogerty. She plays a woman who, when told she can’t play Lady Macbeth because the Shakespeare character is a tragic figure of powerful darkness—and Megan is the human equivalent of a golden retriever—she sets out to prove them all wrong. Silly, theatrical, and complex, Megan attempts to answer the question, “What’s it like to be a woman comedian?” Spoiler: it’s murder.

This play recently won a Pick of the Fringe Award at the Cincinnati Fringe Festival! And, in August it’s on the program of the internationally renowned Edinburgh Fringe Festival. But you can get in on the fun NOW in Des Moines.

Doors and a cash wine bar open at 7pm for picnics; curtain at 8pm. Limited chairs - reserve a seat with optional FREE Registration on Facebook at Des Moines Social Club. www.IowaShakespeare.org.
