We knew we couldn’t have a West End weekend without performing something by an early master of the fantasy genre, William Shakespeare. But which one to perform? The one with witches? Fairies? A talking donkey?
We couldn't decide, so you get them all.
The RSC Shakespeare Company (no, not that one, or that other one either – the recursive one, the "R" stands for "RSC") has traveled from New England to Olde England to perform some of the greatest works in the English language: 37 plays in 97 in minutes. Join our cast as they abridge, adapt and annihilate the words of the Bard of Avon as only Americans can. This is a show for Shakespeare lovers and haters alike.
