Forced Entertainment brings you the Complete Works like you’ve never seen it before, each of Shakespeare’s 36 plays condensed and presented on a table top using a cast of ordinary, everyday objects.
Theatre pioneers Forced Entertainment explore the dynamic force of narrative and language in their simple yet distinctive summary of the playwright’s comedies, tragedies, histories and late work. One by one, members of the ensemble retell all the plays over six days - creating scaled-down worlds that are vivid, accessible and comic - inviting audiences to enjoy one or as many performances as they fancy.
