On Thursday December 1st the Undergraduate Theater Society opens their second show of the season The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abridged) [Revised] by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield. Directed by BA student Aaron Jin,this fast-paced, slap-stick comedy takes the audience through all 37 of Shakespeare's plays with incredible comedy and physical exertion! 

In a world of dry, vomitless academia, how do we turn The Complete Works of William Shakespeare into something fun? In December 2016, three actors come together to accomplish the colossal task of giving you all 1280 pages of Shakespeare’s genius works in 90 minutes of unadulterated fun, and it looks like Titus Andronicus as a cooking show, Hamlet done three times faster and backwards, and a night of bad wigs, props in the air, men in tights, and more! Join these three preeminent Shakespearean scholars on a wild ride of piteous misadventures through the works of the bard. If you love Shakespeare, this play is for you; if you hate Shakespeare, this play is made for you.

The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abriged) [Revised] runs Dec. 1-11 with performances on Wednesday through Sunday at 7:30pm in the Cabaret Theater at Hutchinson Hall. Tickets and Info.
