Synopsis

This much-produced, fast-paced, gag-a-second delight deconstructs all 37 of the Bard’s plays-plus the sonnets-into a single two-hour whirlwind.

The cultural touchstone that is The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) was born when three inspired, charismatic comics, having honed their pass-the-hat act at Renaissance fairs, premiered their preposterous masterwork at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 1987. It quickly became a worldwide phenomenon, earning the title of London’s second-longest-running comedy after a decade at the Criterion Theatre.

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) is one of the world’s most frequently produced plays, and has been translated into several dozen languages. Fast paced, witty, and physical, it’s full of laughter for Shakespeare lovers and haters alike.
