King's Town Players PRESENT
THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (ABRIDGED)
Kingston, August 23, 2010 – Kingston's newest theatre company, the King's Town Players, are proud to announce their upcoming inaugural production: The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield. All of Shakespeare's 37 plays, with the sonnets thrown in for good measure, are compressed into one hilarious show. In under two hours, every play by the Bard will be performed by just three actors: Kingston theatre veterans Clayton Garrett, Steven Spencer and Zorba Dravillas. Directed by another veteran of the Kingston stage, Krista Garrett, these three will pull on their tights and deliver all of the Shakespeare's work with humour, energy and help from the audience.
The members of the cast and crew of The Complete Works are incredibly excited to be opening the King's Town Players first season. As director Krista Garrett says, "The Complete Works has been my decade-long love affair and I'm thrilled to be lending my twisted take to this production."
It's been said of The Complete Works that "If you like Shakespeare, you'll love this show. If you hate Shakespeare, you'll love this show!"
The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) runs from September 14 to 18 at 8:00 PM, with a special matinee on Saturday, September 18 at 2:00 PM,
at Convocation Hall in Theological Hall, Queen's University.
Tickets are $20 ($17 for students and seniors) and are available at the Grand Theatre Box Office
(218 Princess Street, 613-530-2050, www.kingstongrand.ca ).
