Wed, Mar 25 - Fri, Jun 25, 2021
  • Pittsburgh Public Theater
  • O'Reilly Theater


Though the COVID-19 pandemic continues to present challenges and uncertainty, generous supporters like YOU have made it possible for us to adapt during this time with integrity and imagination.

The Public now forges forward with our 46th annual season, and though it may look a little different, we are excited to provide artistically diverse theatrical experiences of the highest quality: producing our new Public PlayTime "Classics N'at" digital benefit series; bringing our acclaimed education programming online; and hosting a new play contest for writers in Ohio, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania to spotlight and celebrate the exhilarating talent of playwrights rooted in our region. 

We cannot do this vital work alone. In this new season, we have had to cut our annual budget by over 50% to support essential programming, artists, and staff. 

Weathering this storm will require extraordinary support from our community of donors. Through the generosity of our institutional partners and individuals, The Public needs to raise $3 million by August 2021 so we can return to the O’Reilly stage as strong as ever when it is safe to do so. 

Please consider contributing to YOUR Pittsburgh Public Theater today to ensure that the show WILL go on both now and in the future.
