August in D.C. is hot, hot hot! Theater is the perfect escape on a hot and humid summer day, and we are delighted to report that for two weeks that theater is FREE!

Through Aug. 28, stop by and enjoy the great District tradition of free summer theater that’s been around for 30 years. It’s time for the Shakespeare Theatre Company (STC) to host its annual “Free for All” event, which will feature a free showing of William Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” every day for anyone.

The Free For All event began in 1991 with the goal of bringing Shakespearean theatre to different audiences in the Washington area. The event moved to downtown D.C. in 2009 and is now held at the Sidney Harman Hall, at 610 F St. NW.

This rendition of “The Tempest” is directed by Ethan McSweeny, an internationally acclaimed director, and features Broadway veteran Patrick Page. The play, which is set on a magical island, tells a story of goddesses and fools that’s sure to keep you entertained.

The Free for All’s two weeks of free performances are designed to introduce more people to the wonders of theatre and the prose of Shakespeare. Admission is free, but select seats are given away to specific lottery winners. Every day, 200 tickets will be available to the public at Sidney Harman Hall approximately two hours before the curtain goes up. Click here for more information.

The limit is two tickets per person. More than 662,000 residents have watched a Free For All production to date.
