The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)

The Los Angeles Herald described this show as “Shakespeare written by Reader’s Digest, acted by Monty Python and performed at the speed of the minute waltz.”

Will you have time to recognise all 37 of the Bard’s plays, as well as his sonnets, in the 97minute performance.

Director Jess Davis was thrilled to work with the three actors who bring this work to life on the stage – Eleanor Petricevic, Luke W Shepherd and Logan McArthur. She says, “It has been an incredible privilege to work with them, and their creativity, playfulness and openness to new, zany ideas has inspired me in every rehearsal.

She is a great defender of the work of small theatre companies.

It is so important that the arts remain accessible – and this show, produced by a hardworking small theatre company with great love and labour, is a great example of an experience that can be enjoyed by the avid, the casual, and the never-set-foot-into-a theatre goer. For those of you that love Shakespeare, I hope you laugh and cringe in equal measures) – and for those of you that hate Shakespeare, I sincerely hope that you enjoy this show even more.

Sounds like a great night out!
