IU South Bend Presents The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)

The IU South Bend Theatre and Dance Company is pleased to present The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged). Prepare to laugh out loud as the actors take you on a tour of plays by William Shakespeare.

Three overachieving actors + 99 minutes + Shakespeare’s entire dramatic cannon = a hilarious tour de farce of epic proportions. One of the world’s most frequently produced plays, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) has been raucously updated for the 21st century and is presented to you here in all of its slapstick, door-slamming, people-falling glory. Looking to laugh in the holiday season? Join us for this screamingly funny Reader’s Digest style homage to the Bard and you’ll be laughing well into the New Year.

The play was written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield, former founding members of the Reduced Shakespeare Company, and first performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 1987 and later played at the Criterion Theatre in London, where it ran for nine years. It has become one of the world's most popular shows, playing frequently in a variety of languages.

The performance is directed by Assistant Professor of Theatre Justin Amellio.  

Performances will be held at 8 pm on Tuesday, December 3, through Friday, December 6, and at 4 pm on Saturday December 7, in the Upstage of Northside Hall.

Tickets for The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) are available for $5-$9 and free to students and children. For more information and to order tickets visit or call the arts box office at 574.520.4203.
