Project X Theatre Presents: The Shakespeare Show
July 17, 2015 @ 7:30 pm
the Shakespeare Show,
or: how an illiterate son of a Glover became the Greatest Playwright in the World
written by Ryan Gladstone
A delightful romp for both the Shakespeare novice and aficionado alike, this hilarious play is born from the greatest theatrical academic debate of all time – who was William Shakespeare and did he REALLY write all those plays? The Shakespeare Showtakes an irreverent look at the number one candidate -‐ The Earl of Oxford. Just like one of his own tragic heroes, Oxford sets his own tragedy in motion by using Shakespeare, the boy who holds the horses outside the theatre, as a ‘front’ for his playwriting ventures. The result? A “relentlessly clever, action-‐packed and intellectually satisfying” adventure complete with puppets, songs, satire and swordfights!
