Full Length Play

Dramatic Comedy

This charming entertainment demonstrates the amazing versatility of the greatest playwright in the English language. "Neither age can whither him nor custom stale his infinite variety." The show is bookended by the hysterical antics of the rustics from A Midsummer Night's Dream, with a delightful journey through mistaken identity, murder, love and war in between. The company of actors presents a dazzling display of comedy and pathos with some of Shakespeare's most famous characters (Romeo, Juliet, Hamlet, Puck, Cleopatra, Portia, Bottom, Richard III, Henry V, Malvolio, etc.) and some of his less-seen characters such as Joan of Arc, the infant princess Elizabeth, the three witches and the hilarious clown, Launce, with his dog, Crab. Extended and alternate scenes are provided so the play can be performed as a full evening or as a shorter version (carefully noted in the text). It is devised to be played by men or women in all the roles—so all your actors can be accommodated. This clever tour de force is a wonderful way to introduce your actors and audience to the marvelous world of William Shakespeare and is a full-course meal for Shakespearean veterans. Bare stage with props. Approximate running time: 90 minutes (versions running 60 minutes or 35 minutes are also possible).
