The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) returns to Singapore

Source: Eventful Events

London’s longest running comedy returns to Singapore from 18 - 28 March 2004 and promises to have audiences rolling down the aisles with laughter! The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) is directed by John Saunders.

The show performed to full houses in nine cities in the region last year. Tim Woods and Spirit Entertainment, together with IMG Artists, are bringing the return season of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) to Singapore. The show, which will be staged at the DBS Arts Centre, received rave reviews in a sell-out season in Singapore in 2002.

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) is a bawdy feast of improvisation, word fights, singing, slapstick and comical death scenes. It condenses all of Shakespeare's 37 plays into a hilarious 97 minutes and has been described as "the Bard without the boring bits.

A cast of three of Australia’s best comedy actors - Ezra Bix, Tim Schwerdt and Berynn Schwerdt - in tights and trainers, playing over 100 different characters, will take you through The Tragedies, The Histories, The Comedies and Poetry, no holds “bard”.

For those not familiar with Shakespeare’s plays, the show is easy to understand and a wonderful opportunity to experience the wit and brilliance of his words. And for those who know him well, the performance will be like no other Shakespeare plays you have ever seen before.

The show has been nominated for an Olivier Award for Best New Comedy and is currently London’s longest running comedy (into its ninth year!). It has had very successful seasons in Hong Kong, six cities in India, Malaysia, Beijing and Sydney (closing on 15 February 2004)

The Singapore return season is presented by Malaysia Airlines.
