The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield

An irreverent, fast-paced romp through the Bard's plays, performed in comically shortened or merged form by only three actors.

All 37 plays in under two hours! Three madcap actors weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare's comedies, histories, and tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter. London's longest-running comedy.
