Shakespeare may be turning in his grave, but the show that s become a cult classic contains all 37 plays (plus sonnets) in just 97 minutes. As the comedies aren t anywhere near as funny as the tragedies, all sixteen have been condensed into Four Weddings and a Transvestite , the history plays are transformed into a game of American football, Othello is performed in rap and Titus Androncius becomes a TV cookery programme. For the finale, Hamlet is staged first as a psychological exploration of Hamlet s Ego and Ophelia s Id, then performed in a matter of minutes and, for the finale, performed backwards. For lovers of Shakespeare everywhere. What cheek! What nerve! What sheer, heavenly, unadulterated fun! Sunday Express.
