The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) directed by Anne-Marie Holmwood This will be Shakespeare Kelowna’s fourth outdoor summer play at the spectacular Vibrant Vine Winery Stage in the heart of East Kelowna’s wine country. The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) originally premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 1987 and featured three overachieving actors attempting to perform all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays in 90 minutes. Fast-paced, witty, and physical, it’s an evening of laughter for Shakespeare lovers and haters alike. After a suitably pompous literary introduction, Act One launches into a highly condensed version of Romeo and Juliet, followed by modern interpretations of… Titus Andronicus and Othello. Next up is a mash-up in which all 16 comedies are performed at once. The pace doesn’t slow down as they move on to the Tragedies and Histories. Just when they think they have completed the challenge of performing all 37 plays they realize they are short by one play – Hamlet. And it’s on to Act Two. This is not your traditional evening of Shakespeare. Produced by Shakespeare Kelowna and performed at Okanagan Villa Estate Winery on the open-air-stage, 3240 Pooley Road, Kelowna (just look for The Vibrant Vine!)
