Prepare yourselves for a hysterically riotous theatrical marathon, complete with an intermission crafted to give both you and our frenzied performers a much-needed breather. This troupe of eccentric, theatrically-challenged merrymakers have the audacity to attempt all of Shakespeare's plays in under 100 minutes. Yep, you heard that right. ALL. THE. PLAYS.

Envision 'Othello' performed in the time it takes to microwave popcorn, and 'Macbeth' rolled out faster than your barista can churn out a caramel macchiato.
Imagine 'Romeo and Juliet' concluding before you've even stopped pondering whether to swipe right on your dating app. This gaggle of theatrical misfits - whose credentials are more 'pie in the face' than 'tights and soliloquy' - are about to deliver the complete works of the Bard at a pace that could make a cheetah break a sweat.

It's 'Shakespeare's Greatest Hits,' if the album were put on fast forward and interpreted by caffeinated jesters who took the phrase 'break a leg' far too literally.
And, oh yes, there is an intermission. But don't think that means the action stops.

During this much-needed pause, we've arranged a veritable sonnet-a-thon in the foyer, keeping you entertained while also giving you a golden opportunity to part with $7 in exchange for a glass of our finest, overpriced intermission wine.
Because nothing says "cultured" quite like sipping a Merlot whilst being serenaded by Shakespeare's sweetest lines on repeat in the voice of President Trump.

Upon your return, brace yourself for the second act.
Watch in disbelief as our performers continue their merrily chaotic romp through the final ball in the canon. Hamlet. Hamlet in 5 minutes, Hamlet in 10 seconds - hell! We'll even do it backwards.

So, fasten your seatbelts and prepare for an evening of high-octane hilarity, botched Bard, and comedic calamity as our theatrical jesters scramble to do the impossible.
This is exactly what the show is: Shakespeare as you've never seen before, and quite possibly will never want to see again. So sip your wine, enjoy the sonnets, and get ready for a night that promises the fastest, funniest, and most wonderfully disastrous renditions of Shakespeare's masterpieces ever attempted.
