CANCELLED- Culture Night: The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abridged) Fri 23rd Sep 2022
|Due to personal circumstances, this performance has been cancelled. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Delighted to bring this production to our studio for Culture Night. Shakespeare may be turning in his grave, but the show that’s become a cult classic contains all 37 plays (plus sonnets) in just 97 minutes. As the comedies aren’t anywhere near as funny as the tragedies, all sixteen have been condensed with the history plays transformed into a game of American football, Othello is performed in rap and Titus Andronicus becomes a TV cookery programme. For the finale, Hamlet is staged first as a psychological exploration of Hamlet’s Ego and Ophelia’s Id, then performed in a matter of minutes and, for the finale, performed backwards. For lovers of Shakespeare everywhere.
“What cheek! What nerve! What sheer, heavenly, unadulterated fun!” Sunday Express.
