The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)

16/04/15 - 25/04/15

Venue: The Forum Studio Theatre

If you think this is the stuffy Shakespeare of your school days then think again…and again! This play maybe the funniest thing you will ever see on stage! 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 into ‘Four Weddings and a Transvestite’, the history plays are 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, and then performed in a matter of minutes and, for the finale, performed backwards. For lovers of Shakespeare everywhere.
