POSTPONED- The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abridged) 22nd - 24th Sep 2022
|Due to personal circumstances, the performances of the Complete Works of Shakespeare on Thursday 22nd and Saturday 24th September have been postponed. We shall be in touch with new dates in due course. If however you wish a refund, please email Box Office at firstname.lastname@example.org We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
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.
