PGaslight Theatre Company presents THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE ABRIDGED this September! Written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield (Reduced Shakespeare Company), COMPLETE WORKS is a saucy, fast-paced play that parodies Shakespeare’s tragedies, comedies, and histories with comically-shortened pieces. By breaking the fourth wall, actors, director, crew, and audience become one for a side-splitting evening of madcap, improv-filled knavery. You’ve never seen Shakespeare done this quickly and this quirky: all 37 plays in 90 minutes! The cast features Gaslight Board members Jason Alfano, Dane Bower, and Tim McDermott directed by Gaslight's Artistic Director David Reynolds!
