The Complete Works Of William Shakespeare (Abridged)

by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield, 13 and 18 October 2009

Part of our annual ‘Shakespeare in the City’ tour

All the worlds a stage,
And all the men and women merely players
They all have their exits and entrances
And one man in his time wears many wigs

Times are hard, times are tough. As a result of the credit crunch, we are all having to make tough choices. Should I have that extra espresso shot in my latte? Do I need to start eating own brand cereal for breakfast? Which Shakespeare play shall I see this week?

Well luckily, Shakespeare in the City have answered one of those questions for you, as they bring The Complete Works Of William Shakespeare (Abridged) to the London Stock Exchange this October. A whirlwind tour through all 37 of Shakespeare's plays in just 90 minutes, with over 80 roles performed by 3 actors and around 15 different wigs.

The show holds the record for the longest running comedy in the West End and was devised and performed by a world famous Shakespeare Company. Based on a script, but largely improvised, the show has become one of the world's most popular shows, being performed in a variety of languages.

With only 2 performances at the Stock Exchange, there are only 200 tickets going on sale so we expect to sell out fast - so book now! The price of your ticket also includes a free glass of wine or beer. Yes, that's right. FREE BEER.

"The funniest show you are likely to see in your entire lifetime."
Montreal Gazette

"If you like Shakespeare, you'll like this show. If you hate Shakespeare, you'll love this show!"
The Today Show

"A madcap condensation that features non-stop laughs. Done at a whirlwind pace and with great delight, they are sure to win over even the most skeptical. And there is no doubt that William Shakespeare himself... would approve."
Daily Variety
