A staged reading starring Stoney Richards, Anna Singer of WQED, Harper York, and Aaron Crutchfield with live music by Matt Calvetti at the beautiful Union Trust Building Theatre. To benefit 20th anniversary of PSIP bringing free Shakespeare to Pittsburgh city parks!

"Shakespeare: This Could be True," a new one-act by Charles David “Stoney” Richards who also penned last season’s indoor comedy, “Shakespeare: The First Drafts.”

This Could Be True" is a one-act comedy about an Actor confined to an insane asylum as he suffers from Misidentification Syndrome believing he is a member of Shakespeare’s company. He thinks the people speaking to him are someone else. When he learns of Shakespeare’s death, he becomes further obsessed in getting John Heminges and Henry Condell (who led printing of the First Folio) to publish Will’s plays before ‘they are scattered by the winds of time.

The two sides battle, but the medical team played by Aaron Crutchfield and Anna Singer believes they have found a way to help the mental torture of this actor, portrayed by playwright Richards).

Audience is invited to a post-show talkback and wine-and-cheese reception with the cast after each performance.

Doors open at 6:30 for a 7 PM performance each night.

Tickets are $35/$15 for students.
