The Complete Works of William Shakespeare, Abridged, Revised.
For two evenings only, Friday 5th April and Saturday 6th April 7.30pm, Shawbury Village Players would like to invite you to join us as we try to attempt a feat, which we believe to be unprecedented in the history of Shawbury, to capture the magic, the genius and the grandeur of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare. Rather than give any impression that this event will be a scholarly analysis of the Complete Works of the greatest of all English playwrights, we intend to get through every single play within 95 minutes! Not only that, but as the director was unable to assemble the cast of dozens of veteran performers that he wanted, and has been forced to make do with a cast of…three.
So come and join us as we work our way through how to navigate the inherent difficulty of performing Othello? Just how many characters can we cut from Romeo & Juliet? Will the actors be able to stay away from the bar all evening? Just what was Hamlet talking about in his most famous speech? And, most importantly, can it even be done? There is only one way to find out!
This production contains some adult humour and strong language.
