ShakeSPLOSION: The Comedies and Tragedies!!! is a madcap dash through the comedies and tragedies written by the Bard. From (nearly) every bloody death in the Tragedies to every girl who dressed up as a boy in the Comedies, it's like watching Shakespeare's canon fired out of a cannon—scattering prose, verse and characters across the stage. Forty minutes of sword fights, word fights, witches, ghosts and murder!! Performed by teenagers!!!
