"Three actors, all alike in stupidity.
In fair Sydney, where we lay our scene,
From ancient texts to new parody,
Where modern takes, leave classic texts unclean.
From forth the fatal loins of these three fools,
A trio of star-crossed morons share their strife;
Whose misadventures laughter overflows,
Do with their take, summarise Shakespeare's life.
The fearless passage of their strange fool love,
And the continuance of turning page,
Which but a restraining order could not remove,
Is now the 2 hours traffic of our stage.
To which with patronage may you attend,
All of Shakespeare's works abridged, the end."
Can three guys really cover thirty-seven Shakespeare plays in less than two hours? In this fast paced comedy be prepared for non-stop laughs as three performers parody all of Shakespeare's works, including the sonnets, in just two acts. Hilarity ensues as they try to modernise classic works you know and love, such as Romeo & Juliet, Hamlet, and Macbeth, through rap, a wild sports match and even a cooking show. The Bard will never be the same again!
