The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)

The hilarious West End smash-hit comes to Hobart!!


The brainchild of The Reduced Shakespeare Company and first performed at the Edinburgh Festival in 1987, this play subsequently transferred to London’s West End where it ran for an amazing nine years! The show is an hilarious tour de force that touches on all of Shakespeare’s work with every single one of the one thousand one hundred twenty-two roles in Shakespeare’s plays performed by just three actors in 97 mins!!

The play holds the (self-proclaimed) world record for the shortest-ever performance of Hamlet, clocking in at 43 seconds, as well as the fastest performance of Hamlet backwards, at 42 seconds! Fresh from its sell-out Sydney revival this new production has been called ‘… a healthy dose of old-school theatre-magic.’ and ‘one production you should take the children to’.

Don’t miss it!!! Two shows ONLY!!
