The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)

30 Oct - 5 Dec 2021 | KC Arts Centre – Home of SRT


3 Actors. 37 plays. 97 minutes. It’s Shakespeare at its funniest!

Experience Shakespeare like never before as SRT presents London’s longest-running comedy, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged). An irreverent, fast-paced romp through the best bits of the Bard’s plays. Join in the fun and merriment as three actors weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s 37 comedies, histories, and tragedies in one wild 97-minute ride that will leave you breathless with laughter.  

“Rollicking, fast-moving and hilarious!” – The Guardian

“Shakespeare as it was back in the Bard’s day: bawdy, irreverent, sublimely entertaining.” – Miami Herald

“If you like Shakespeare, you’ll like this show. If you hate Shakespeare, you’ll love this show!” – The Today Show

“A madcap condensation that features nonstop laughs. Done at a whirlwind pace and with great delight, they are sure to win over even the most sceptical. And there is no doubt that William Shakespeare himself … would approve.”
 Daily Variety

SRT has prided itself on being a trail-blazer in the industry. When the pandemic started 20 months ago, SRT was the first company to produce original digital content during the first Circuit Breaker with Coronalogues. After theatres had been closed for eight months, we were the first to re-open with Tuesdays with Morrie. After the next round of heightened measures, we brought you Lungs. Despite only being allowed to operate with 110 seats in our 380-seat venue, we ploughed ahead because we knew we were supporting our staff and the numerous freelancers who depend on us. We also wanted to keep our community engaged and inspired.

Since outdoor performances are still not allowed and our Shakespeare in the Park at Fort Canning had to be put on hold, we decided we would do Shakespeare in the Power Station!

But when the latest restrictions were announced last Friday, they had a huge impact on our ability to produce a larger-scaled event.

Even though we love the power station, we decided the financially prudent thing to do would be to move the show to our own venue in order to mitigate the risk. (The team at the power station have been great and very understanding. We look forward to staging something there as soon as we are allowed to operate at full capacity!)

We are incredibly grateful to you for your support, and would like to thank you for your understanding.

Stay strong, stay healthy and please help us spread the word by telling all your friends to come and enjoy this hilariously whacky show with us - all 37 plays performed in 97 minutes by 3 terrific actors. We chose this comedy because everybody is need of a good laugh!

Best wishes,

The SRT Team
