The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)[revised][again]
An irreverent, fast-paced romp through the Bard’s plays, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)[revised][again] by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield, was London’s longest-running comedy having clocked a very palpable nine years in London’s West End! Three Shakespearean “super fans” weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s Comedies, Histories and Tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter. Fun, frantic, and perfect for the whole family!
Shake on the Lake produced The Complete Works as their inaugural production in 2012, influencing their fast, fun, and physical style, which has become a hallmark of their staging of Shakespeare’s plays to this day. This 2023 tour is in co-production with the Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre, and is supported by the New York State Council on the Arts.
This Wellsville performance is made possible with funds from the Expanding Access to Arts Funding in WNY, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Cullen Foundation.
Additional support provided by the Charles and Lorraine Joyce Family Fund of the Allegany County Area Foundation.
