by Ryan Gladstone
starring Ryan Gladstone and Tara Travis
directed by Karen Hamm
original score by Drew Jurecka
Who wrote the plays of William Shakespeare? Shakespeare himself? The Earl of Oxford? A horse? Monster Theatre gets to the bottom of it at The Edmonton Fringe August 13-23, 2015.
“This play is so damn clever, even if you don’t know any Shakespeare you’ll still understand it. If you have a love for language, physical comedy and intelligent wit, then The Shakespeare Show is for you.” ★★★★★ -CBC Winnipeg
“Brings the bawdy world of Shakespeare to life! The Shakespeare Show stands out in the festival for having something to say, and saying it with purpose and humour.” ★★★★★-Kevin Prokosh, Winnipeg Free Press
