The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)
6th August 2019 - 10th August 2019£6.50 – £8.50
Written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer & Jess Winfield
Directed by Harriet Vickers
Shakespeare may be turning in his grave, but this has become a cult classic and contains all 37 of Shakespeare’s Comedies, Histories and Tragedies in just 97 minutes in a wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter.
As the comedies aren’t anywhere near as funny as the tragedies, all sixteen have been condensed into ‘Four Weddings and a Transvestite’, the history plays are transformed into a game of American football, Othello is performed in rap and Titus Andronicus becomes a TV cookery programme. For the finale, Hamlet is staged first as a psychological exploration of Hamlet’s Ego and Ophelia’s Id, and then performed in a matter of minutes.
A treat for lovers of Shakespeare everywhere and a revelation for all who have avoided Shakespeare until now.
This show is a high-speed roller-coaster type condensation of all of Shakespeare’s plays, and is not recommended for people with heart ailments, bladder problems, inner-ear disorders, outer-ear disorders, Shakespearean scholars, degrees in Elizabethan history and/or people inclined to motion sickness.
The Dawlish Repertory Company cannot be held responsible for expectant mothers!
The Box Office will be open from Monday 29th July daily from 10am – 12pm (Mon-Sat).
This amateur production of “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)” is presented by special arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd.
