The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) (2006)


Poster design by Melanie Uhlir

Instead of choosing just one Shakespeare play for the summer of 2006, the ISC decided to tackle all 37 at once with this hilarious, breakneck adaptation by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield.

Channeling everyone and everything from football announcers to televangelists to Julia Child, five company members mobilized the entire audience to assist them in this raucous, irreverent romp through the Reader's Digest version of the Bard's works.
