A single, solid, well-formed lump of hilarity

“The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)” opens at the Masque Theatre, Muizenberg, on Friday 26 February 2016. Originally written and performed by the Reduced Shakespeare Company, this play is quite a remarkable feat – all 37 plays covered by only three actors in under two hours.

Taking on the challenge this time round are regulars on the Masque stage Daniel Enticott, Kim R2 and Faeron Wheeler. Enticott was last seen on stage in “The Great Gatsby” in 2014. He is also no stranger to comedy after making audiences laugh along with Kim R2 in “Flat Spin”, also in 2014. Kim R2 and Wheeler shared the stage last year in the CATA nominated “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” and again in the hilarious foyer show “The Actor’s Nightmare”.

Presented by Constantiaberg Theatre Players, this production has been workshopped by the cast and has no formal director. This process has created a strong bond between cast members and an organic performance that is sure to entertain. The cast has relied on the guiding eye and directorial advice from Masque regulars, including CATA nominees Sheldon Cross (“The Actor’s Nightmare” and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”) and Stephan Fourie (“Hope Street, the Musical”).

Prepare to be thoroughly entertained by three courageous actors as they take on a mammoth task: to condense the towering grandeur that is the work of William Shakespeare into a single, solitary lump of hilarity. The “Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)” opens at the Masque Theatre, Muizenberg, on Friday 26 February and runs until Saturday 5 March. Tickets are R80, with discounts available for groups of 10 or more.
