The Arena Players Repertory Theater will extend its Summer Shakespeare Festival with a comedy, The Complete Works of Shakespeare. The madcap evening features three actors trying to perform every one of William Shakespeare’s plays as quickly as possible.
Two performances will be given: Sundays, September 11 and 18, at 8:00 p.m., on the stage of the Vanderbilt Mansion courtyard. (In the event of rain, the two-hour show will be given in the Vanderbilt Education Center.)
The production was first performed, by the three young actors who wrote it, in 1987 at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
The authors are members of the renowned Reduced Shakespeare Company, which has created irreverent productions since 1981. This riotously funny production includes audience participation. Theater-goers are encouraged to bring a picnic and enjoy dinner before the show.
