Directed by Ophelia’s Jump Associate Artistic Director, Caitlin Lopez the production plays September 22 - October 7, 2017 at the Ophelia’s Jump Studio in Upland.

 

About The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged):

All 37 plays in 97 minutes! Three madcap actors in tights weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s comedies, histories, and tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter! Originally produced by Reduced Shakespeare Company,  London’s longest running comedy arrives in Upland as the premiere production at the new home of Ophelia’s Jump.  

 

“A madcap condensation that features nonstop laughs. Done at a whirlwind pace and with great delight, they are sure to win over even the most skeptical. And there is no doubt that William Shakespeare himself … would approve.” —Daily Variety

“If you like Shakespeare, you’ll like this show. If you hate Shakespeare, you’ll love this show!” 

—The Today Show

“Stupendous, anchorless joy!” —The London Times

“Wildly funny. Masterful!” —The Los Angeles Times
