How on earth can you do the impossible? How could you possibly act through Shakespeare’s entire canon (thirty-seven plays) in ninety-seven minutes? By summarizing the canon through football plays, rap songs, and outrageously condensed, comedy mash-up titles (like Four Weddings and a Transvestite) of course! The Complete Works of William Shakespeare: Abridged hilariously summarizes all of Shakespeare’s plays, using reenactments and audience participation. It is famous for holding the (self-proclaimed) record for the shortest production of Hamlet at forty-three seconds. An extremely popular play that ran in London for nine years and has enjoyed countless productions in various languages playing throughout the world, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare: Abridged entertains and teaches audiences facts about Shakespeare while ensuring them a rollicking good time.
