Shaking Up Shakespeare
Old Barn Community Theatre presents the popular parody The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), Sept. 5-20, Monday, Friday and Saturday, at 7:30 p.m., with a matinee on Sept. 13, at 2:30 p.m.
The play, written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield, premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 1987, went on to nine record-breaking years on London’s West End. It has been the world’s most performed stage parody for the last 20 years.
The Complete Works, directed by Sam Farnsworth, is a hilarious, fast-paced romp through the Bard’s extensive playbook. Three (that’s right, only three) madcap men (Sam Farnsworth, Morgan Hawkes and Matt Bodrero) weave their wacky way through all of Shakespeare’s comedies, histories and tragedies in one wild evening that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter.
