William Shakespeare’s Long Lost First Play (abridged)
WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE’S LONG LOST FIRST PLAY (ABRIDGED)
by Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor
The play imagines it’s actors have just returned from a tour in London, where buried under a parking lot in Leicester, they find a 100-hour-long manuscript written in the 17-year old Shakespeare’s very own hand (a “faux-lio,” if you will)... and the result is a loving, self-deprecating riff on Shakespeare’s complete canon, condensed into about 90 minutes and chock full of hilarious references to Disney, Winnie the Pooh, contemporary literature, film– if it’s anything involving Shakespeare in pop culture, it’s there.
