Tony Brownings explains:


“Three actors perform 37 plays in 97 minutes. An irreverent, fast paced romp through the Bard’s plays.


Three Actors weave their way through all of Shakespeare’s comedies, histories and tragedies that will leave you breathless with laughter.


The history plays are performed as an American football match with the crown as the ball. Titus Andronicus is a TV cookery programme. Othello is performed in Rap. Hamlet is done in minutes and then done backwards!


After a few years away from directing, I was looking for another challenge. Having had some success with Noises Off and The 39 Steps I was up for something with those physical comedy aspects. When up pops The Complete works of Shakespeare (abridged) as available, this was going to be my next challenge!


I will need two male and one female actors who are experienced in comedy and willing to do physical knockabout comedy at a terrific pace. There will be no 4th wall so the actors need to be comfortable talking to and interacting with audience. A costume and backstage team need to be added to the fun and will be an integral part of the performance.


Scripts are not available yet, but anyone interested should get in touch with me via email
