Comedy. HistoryTragedy.

What better way to celebrate the start of the 25th Anniversary Season than by doing all of Shakespeare’s canon – in one evening! The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) features three actors on a mission: to bring the entirety of Shakespeare’s works to life on the stage in one fell swoop. Gallop along with us as we careen wildly through all the comedies, histories and tragedies using a trunkful of props, wigs, and outrageous costumes – it’s a joyous Shakespeare jambalaya you definitely don’t want to miss.

July 20- August 5, 2018

Directed by Sara Clark

Featuring Miranda McGee, Geoffrey Barnes, and Justin McCombs

The cast is back- Miranda McGee, Geoffrey Barnes, and Justin McCombs!  This comedic trio returns to the CSC stage after hit performances of The Complete History of America (abridged) and All the Great Books (abridged) at Cincinnati Shakespeare Company in 2015 and 2016.  CityBeat said of the trio that “all three are strong and versatile actors on Cincy Shakes’ stage and beyond, which makes it a delight to see them off of their leashes and yukking it up in a bawdy and lower-brow way.” And “together they seem to have a great deal of fun onstage, and their energy is infectious…the actors’ unflagging and inventive energy is more than enough to keep you entertained.” The Cincinnati Enquirer agreed, “with a cast like this…All of them are inveterate laugh-chasers. If there is a laugh to be extracted from the material, they are very likely to find it.”
