Shakespeare on the Lawn (SotL) works to increase the availability and accessibility of Shakespeare and Renaissance theatre to the general public. SotL is committed to creating an environment of mutual respect where everyone, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, ability, religion, or any other characteristic, can come together in pursuit of this goal.

We stand firmly in opposition to discrimination in any form, and particularly to bigotry which seeks to invade our communities under the guise of legitimate political discourse. Any individual who seeks to divide or to demean any persons on the basis of personal attributes or beliefs does not share the values of Shakespeare on the Lawn.
