Get ready for a fast, furious and frenetic show featuring every one of Shakespeare’s 37 plays like you’ve never seen them before.The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) is a fast-paced romp through the Bard’s plays, which has played to millions around the world. This fantastic comedy is back on tour in the UAE after its sell out seasons in 2006, 2007 and 2009. The world’s greatest bard-busters bring madness and mayhem in bucketfuls with them. Now revised for 2013 with new gags extra 'Shakespeary' bits there's lots for new comers and old fans to enjoy.
Including Othello as a Rap song, Titus Andronicus presented as a cooking show and The Histories turned into an American football game, it’s a take on Shakespeare that would make the playwright roll in his grave (with laughter).
Starring the brilliant Matt Addis, Peter Brooke and John Payton (who also directs), Shakespeare has never been so accessible. Why sit throught Hamlet for hours when you can catch it performed backwards in half a minute!
