THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE ABRIDGED

By Sam Barlow Theatre Department (other events)

4 Dates Through Mar 08, 2020
 
ABOUT ABOUT

An irreverent, fast-paced romp through the Bard’s plays, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) was London’s longest-running comedy having clocked a very palpable nine years in London’s West End at the Criterion Theatre! Join these madcap players in tights as they weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s Comedies, Histories and Tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter. This play is full of energy as the characters run across the stage and keep you guessing how they will pull off the next play. Clever use of some interesting costumes also adds to the fun. This show is a high-speed roller-coaster type condensation of all of Shakespeare’s plays, and is not recommended for people with heart ailments, bladder problems, inner-ear disorders, outer-ear disorders, Shakespearean scholars, degrees in Elizabethan history and/or people inclined to motion sickness. The RSC cannot be held responsible for expectant mothers!

“A madcap condensation that features non-stop laughs. Done at a whirlwind pace and with great delight, they are sure to win over even the most skeptical. And there is no doubt that William Shakespeare himself… would approve.” Daily Variety

“If you like Shakespeare, you’ll like this show. If you hate Shakespeare, you’ll  love this show!” The Today Show

“Stupendous, anchorless joy!” The London Times

“Wildly funny. Masterful!” Los Angeles Times

“Shakespeare as it was back in the Bard’s day: bawdy, irreverent, sublimely entertaining.” Miami Herald
