Discovered in a treasure-filled parking lot in Leicester, England (next to a pile of bones that didn’t look that important), an ancient manuscript proves to be the long-lost first play written by none other than seventeen-year-old William Shakespeare from Stratford. We are totally not completely making this up.
William Shakespeare’s Long Lost First Play (abridged) is the literary holy grail: an actual manuscript in Shakespeare’s own hand showing all his most famous characters and familiar speeches in a brand-new story. But because it’s one hundred hours long and contains multiple unwieldy storylines, Too Friendly Theatre Company decides, as a public service, to abridge it down to a brief and palatable ninety minutes and perform the world premiere of this lost masterpiece.
You haven’t seen the Complete Works until you’ve seen William Shakespeare’s Long Lost First Play (abridged)!
Playwrights Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor weave together most of the famous speeches and plot devices of Shakespeare’s thirty-nine plays to create a fast, funny, and fictional fortieth, filled with witty wordplay and vaudevillian variety.
“If you like Shakespeare you’ll like the show. If you hate Shakespeare, you’ll love it!”
“Something wickedly funny this way comes!”
“A breathlessly irreverent and pun-filled romp!”
“An absolute resolute hoot of a bawdy comedy of errors!”
“Gloriously funny! Don’t miss it!”
