“The Complete Works of William Shakespeare: Abridged,” produced by Southwestern College senior Justin Tinker, Las Vegas, will be performed Thursday and Friday, April 18 and 19, in Messenger Recital Hall in the Darbeth Fine Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. Audiences should be advised that there is adult content and language in the show.
“The Complete Works of William Shakespeare: Abridged” is a comedic take on every play Shakespeare has ever written. It condenses 37 plays into approximately 90 minutes, with only three actors.
Authors of the show say, “If you love Shakespeare, you’ll like this play. If you hate Shakespeare, you’ll love this play.”
“It’s so cool that Southwestern theatre gives you an open opportunity to experience in an educational setting what you’ll experience in the professional world,” says Tinker. “‘The Complete Works of William Shakespeare: Abridged’ is a show I’ve been fond of since I first started doing theatre. It’s always been a dream of mine to put on this show.”
Tinker went on to mention that he really enjoys being able to choose his own team of people with whom to collaborate.
“Being able to pick the people you work with, and really using their talents, makes it a very memorable and educational experience,” he says.
