FLORENCE, S.C. – The Francis Marion University Theatre will present “The Compleat Wks of Wllm Skspr (abridged),” by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield, April 14-17.
Performances begin at 8 p.m. in the Hyman Fine Arts Center’s theatre. Admission is free, but reservations are recommended. Call the box office at 843-661-1365, beginning April 5, Monday through Friday, between 1 and 5 p.m., for seating availability.
Three Francis Marion University theatre students will perform a feat never before attempted in the history of the university. They will perform the complete works of William Shakespeare in one evening of theatre.
Theatre majors Brad Sponic of Goose Creek, David Sistare of Lake City, and Andrew Cogswell of Walterboro, will attempt to cover all of Shakespeare’s plays in one sitting. This humorous (and some might think irreverent) covering of the Bard’s plays is an attempt, as the script puts it, “to makes these musty old plays applicable to a present-day audience.” Approaches to the plays include such applications as Titus Andronicus as a cooking show, and the complete histories as a football game.
