Get ready to experience sixteen comedies, eleven tragedies, ten histories and assorted sonnets, all brought to you by three zany actors in 97 side-splitting minutes. “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) [revised]” returns to Out of Box Theatre September 26 – October 11.

“The Complete Works of William Shakespeare” is directed by Out of Box’s Artistic Director Carolyn Sheppard Choe and features award-winning (well, if 5th grade theatre participation awards count) actors Bob Smith, Amy Cain and Jeffrey Bigger. All the world’s a stage as these three merry gentlemen (and one “lady”) in tights attempt to portray every work ever penned by the venerable Bard.

Out of Box Theatre does offer this disclaimer: “Warning! This show is a high-speed roller-coaster type condensation of all of Shakespeare’s plays, and is not recommended for people with heart ailments, bladder problems, inner-ear disorders and/or people inclined to motion sickness. Out of Box Theatre cannot be held responsible for expectant mothers! Audience participation and laughter is highly encouraged.”

“The Complete Works of William Shakespeare, Abridged (revised)” runs September 26 – October 11, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM, Sundays at 3 PM. Out of Box Theatre is located in the Artisan Resource Center at 585 Cobb Pkwy S, Marietta, 30060. Tickets are $20-$25 and can be purchased online at http://www.outofboxtheatre.com/ or by calling 678-653-4605.
