THE COMPLEAT WRKS
OF WLLM SHKSPR (ABRIDGED)

Written by Adam Long, David Singer,
and Jess Winfield
ONE NIGHT ONLY! July 6th, 2019
at Agecroft Hall & Gardens

Back again by popular demand! This crazy comedy is an irreverent, high-speed roller coaster ride through the Bard’s plays. For the fourth year running, join our madcap trio as they weave their wacky way through Shakespeare’s Comedies, Histories and Tragedies in one wild night that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter.

THE TAMING OF THE SHREW

July 11th - August 4th, 2019
Agecroft Hall & Gardens

Two wealthy sisters in Padua must be married off. The modest and beautiful Bianca has no shortage of suitors, but who on earth will take the wild, ungovernable, ‘shrewish’ Katherina? Perhaps the gold-digging Petruchio, as maddeningly strong-willed and perverse as Katherina herself, will rise to the task of bullying her to the altar. Shakespeare’s original screwball comedy shows the lengths men will go to for their legacy and what women will do to break free. This play about gender power struggle is considered the bard’s most misogynistic, but performed by an all-female cast offers an exciting new perspective.
