This year marks the 400th year anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death and what better way to celebrate his life than with a crash course in his work?

Presented by the Constantiaberg Theatre Players, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) opens at the Masque Theatre in Muizenberg on Friday.

Originally written and performed by the Reduced Shakespeare Company, the play is quite a remarkable feat with all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays covered by only three actors in less than two hours.

Taking on the challenge this time round are regulars on the Masque stage Daniel Enticott, Kim R2 and Faeron Wheeler.

Daniel was last seen on stage in The Great Gatsby and is no stranger to comedy after making audiences laugh along with Kim R2 in Flat Spin.

Kim R2 and Faeron shared the stage last year in the Cata-nominated A Midsummer Night’s Dream and again in the hilarious foyer show The Actor’s Nightmare.

The production has been workshopped by the cast and has no formal director. This process has created a strong bond between them and an organic performance that is sure to entertain.

The cast has relied on the guiding eye of and directorial advice from Masque regulars, including Cata nominees Sheldon Cross (The Actor’s Nightmare and A Midsummer Night’s Dream) and Stephan Fourie (Hope Street, the Musical).

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) will be on stage this Friday and Saturday and then from Wednesday 2 until Saturday 5 March. Tickets are R80 each, with discounts available for groups of 10 or more.

Call the Masque Theatre on 021 788 1898 weekdays between 09:00 and 16:00 and Saturdays from 09:00 to 12:00 or email to book. Visit the ConstantiabergTheatrePlayers page on Facebook for more information.
