This is the follow-up to The Complete Works of Shakespeare, a big success for us five years ago. Madness and mayhem guaranteed!

Juliet reconsiders

A brand new Shakespeare play has been discovered in a carpark in Leicester amidst some unimportant old bones. Written when the Bard was just a spotty 17 year old in Stratford, this thrilling manuscript seems to include the first drafts of all of his later body of work that we are familiar with today, all jumbled together in the one 100 hour play! Three Shakespearean enthusiasts have got their hands on the manuscript and are determined to present it to the good people of Sydney for the very first time ever!

Shakespeare arrives to save the day

Puck and Ariel battle it out in quest of the title of best fairy, Cleopatra falls for Eeyore's Bottom, Hamlet finds that Lady M is great at motivating him to be more of a 'to be' Hamlet instead of a 'not to be' Hamlet, while Lear's three daughters the weird sisters predict, incant, and prepare potions on a Scottish Moor. Since the full manuscript is over 100 hours, our gallant band may have to make some cuts during the performance, right before your eyes!
