An evening of sparkling sophistication and unabashed fun it includes comic sketches and songs, some specially written for the show, by the cream of creative genius.

"A joyous words-and music anthology in loving mockery of the bard"

First presented by the RSC at The Barbican Centre and subsequently in the West End, this joyous words-and-music celebration of the delights of the bard gathers together some of the finest comic material inspired by Shakespeare. With contributions from the cream of writing and performing talent this collective masterpiece is certain to enthrall, entrance and ENTERTAIN!

The show is a handsome tribute to British comic writing. Clever, spontaneous and a wholly civilised delight, it epitomises the charm of revue.

A simple format: sketches, songs and skits inspired by the Bard and put over with vigour, delight and panache by highly accomplished performers.
