The Complete Works Of William Shakespeare Abridged

The Complete Works Of William Shakespeare (Abridged) – Dubai, UAE.

By popular demand the fantastic comedy returns to Dubai for a strictly limited season. The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) is an irreverent fast-paced romp through Shakespeare’s plays, which has played to millions around the world and was nominated for the Timeout Dubai Nightlife Award for best production. The world’s greatest bard-busters bring madness and mayhem in bucketfuls with them. Now revised for 2016 with extra Shakespeary bits and all new (still rubbish) gags!

Get ready for a fast, furious and frenetic 97 minutes featuring every one of Shakespeare’s 37 plays like you’ve never seen them before. Including Othello as a Rap song, Titus Andronicus presented as a cooking show and The Histories turned into an American football game – it’s Shakespeare that would make the great man turn in his grave – with a grin on his face!

London’s longest running comedy comes to Dubai for a strictly limited season of performances. Starring the brilliant Andrew Hodges, Gary Fannin & Peter Brooke, Shakespeare has never been so accessible before. Sit through Hamlet for four hours? No need – catch it performed backwards in half a minute!

This hilarious show runs at the Centrepoint Theatre, DUCTAC, Mall of the Emirates, Dubai from 22nd to the 27th to 26th November 2016. It is presented by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd.

Please see the official show website www.completeshakespeare.co.uk for more information.
