The Dolphin Playhouse in the Empire District of Coos Bay is producing this comical and classic farce; two of its original writer/performers thoroughly revised the show to bring it up to date for 21st-century audiences, incorporating some of the funniest material from the numerous amateur and professional productions that have been performed throughout the world.
The cultural touchstone that is THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (ABRIDGED) [Revised] was born when three inspired, charismatic comics, having honed their pass-the-hat act at Renaissance fairs, premiered their preposterous masterwork at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 1987. It quickly became a worldwide phenomenon, earning the title of London’s longest-running comedy after a decade at the Criterion Theatre. THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (ABRIDGED) [Revised] is one of the world’s most frequently produced plays and has been translated into several dozen languages.
Featured are all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays, meant to be performed in 97 minutes, by four actors. Fast paced, witty, and physical, it’s full of laughter for Shakespeare lovers and haters alike.
Opening night, October 13, will coincide with the 9th annual Party at the Playhouse.
5:45 pm with food, games, beer & wine, with the show starting at 7:00 pm.
Dessert & 50/50 Drawing at Intermission.
The show continues on October 14 & 15th, October 20, 21 & 22nd, October 27, 28 & 29th
