Shakespeare ... revised

Haileybury Senior School students took to the stage last night to bring to life The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged).

Playing to a packed audience the large cast presented a hilarious compression of all of Shakespeare's works to just 80 minutes.  It may not have been an entirely accurate rendition but it definitely hit the funny bone of the audience. 

The audience participation created some anxiety on the faces of the front row but the whole crowd eventually joined in with some interesting chants representing the thinking of Ophelia. 

The cast are to be congratulated on their comic timing and improvisational skill.
