The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (ABRIDGED)


The Wayne County Museum, 116 N. William Street, Downtown Goldsboro
**The content of the show should be considered "PG-13;" however, a "RE-Abridged, PG-ish" version will be performed for the Sunday afternoon show. Please keep this in mind when purchasing your tickets.

The cultural touchstone that is The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (ABRIDGED) 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 second-longest-running comedy after a decade at the Criterion Theatre. Shakespeare (ABRIDGED) is one of the world's most frequently produced plays, and has been translated into dozens languages.

Featured are all 37 of Shakespeare's plays, meant to be performed in 97 minutes, by three actors. Fast paced, witty, and physical, it's full of laughter for Shakespeare lovers and haters alike.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Reduced Shakespeare Company's classic farce, two of its original writer/performers (Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield) have 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 around the world.

"...Shakespeare (ABRIDGED) embodies one of comedy's most essential impulses: the adolescent urge to take a baseball bat to the culturally revered. A mix of pratfalls, puns, willful mis-readings of names and dialogue, clunky female impersonations, clean-cut ribaldry, and broad burlesque. The gung-ho vitality is impossible to resist. The conversion of the histories into a football game is very funny. So is a rap version of OTHELLO. HAMLET truly soars and allows the actors to come into their own as manic clowns. At its giddiest, its tone recalls the fabled Bullwinkle cartoon shows."
Ben Brantley, The New York Times

"This irreverent deconstruction of Shakepeare's work makes a dilly of poor Willy. A fantasia of zany energy that throws together Monty Python-ish drag and Mel Brook-ish anything-for-a-laugh gags."
Michael Musto, New York Daily News

"Fresh, energetic and funny. A wild and silly frolic."
Pia Lindstrom, WNBC-TV
