The Complete Works if William Shakespeare (Abridged)
Written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield
Directed by Laura Vohs
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 Faires, 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.
The show features a group of overachievers attempting to perform all thirty-seven of Shakespeare's plays in ninety-seven minutes. Fast-paced, witty, and physical, it is an evening of laughter for Shakespeare lovers and haters alike.
SBCT is proud to give the older youth guild members a chance to showcase their extraordinary talents in this fast-paced, hilarious show.
Rated PG-13 for some mature humor and language.
