Synopsis: Shakespeare may be turning in his grave, but the show that’s become a cult classic contains all 37 plays (plus sonnets) in just 97 minutes. Written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield, it parodies the plays of William Shakespeare with all of them being performed in comically shortened or merged form by as few as three actors.

Casting "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)," all 37 Plays in 97 minutes.
Actor 1, the troupe leader; Actor 2, the scholar, Actor 3 the comedic relief.  Rolls can be cast as either men or women and it is possible we may have more than 3 performers.
Actors must be high-energy, quick-thinking, creative, spontaneous, can handle some classical text, up for very immature jokes, and can pull off high-energy physical comedy.
THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (abridged) is performed by special arrangement with Broadway Play Publishing Inc., New York, NY
