(Clinton Small and Adam Doré)

It’s the comedy highlight of the year! 37 Plays! 97 Minutes!

It’s the Actor’s Unemployed Company in The Compleat Wrks of Wllm Shkspr (Abridged) starring Marc Kay, Adam Doré and Clinton Small.

Denis Beckett described it as ‘Vigorous!’, and the show is already sold out for their run in Pretoria later this year. See men in tights! Witness women with beards! Be amazed by swordfights of the highest calibre! And be utterly charmed as three actors breathe new life into the works of the most famous playwright ever! The show will take audiences through all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays at breakneck speed, enlightening, illuminating and making people fall out of their seats.

Fresh from sold out performances at the Hilton Festival comes this irreverent, wildly funny, fast-paced romp through the Bard’s plays. Compleat Works (abridged) invites audiences to join these madcap men in tights as they weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s Comedies, Histories and Tragedies in one wild ride, leaving you breathless and helpless with laughter, whether you're a Shakespeare fan or not!

The Compleat Wrks of Wllm Shkspr (Abridged) runs in the Hexagon Theatre at the University of KZN, Pietermaritzburg, from September 29 to October 1 at 19h30. Tickets R75 (R50 students/ seniors) booked on 033 260 5537 or email:
