IN A world where we constantly lament that we are "time-poor", who has enough hours in the day or indeed the stamina to endure the length of such a canon as the complete works of William Shakespeare?
But fortunately for Queanbeyan theatre goers, three brave actors brazenly blend the best of the brilliant Bard with the bottom of the absurdity barrel in this farcical feast of inspired lunacy.
A side-splitting rollercoaster ride involving improvisation, pop culture and audience participation, as well as the fastest, funniest rendition of Hamlet you're ever likely to see.
"This play will appeal to people who like Spicks and Specks or Whose Line Is It Anyway. Shakespeare was a teller of ripping yarns," Director Adam Cook said.
It features standup comic and TV sketch show performer Damian Callinan best known for his TV spots on Skithouse, Before The Game and Comedy Slapdown as well as being a regular guest on Spicks 'n' Specks.
He's joined by thespian Tim Overton, who graduated from the Adelaide College of the Arts acting course in 2008, and Nic English, whose screen credits include short film Being Nowhere and travel show The Vibe.
Catch the three-piece cast as they power through 37 Shakespeare plays in one hilarious outing at The Q Performing Arts Centre, Queanbeyan.
