Complete Works of Shakespeare Abridged

Complete Works of Shakespeare Abridged - Feb 7-9, 14-16, 21-23
Written by Jess Borgeson, Adam Long, Daniel Singer
Directed by Dea Young Smith
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 Androncius 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. $20 adults, $Students/Seniors
