Will Shakespeare needs a new play for the Queen – in less than a week. Desperately he puts together bits and pieces of plays he’s been working on but has yet to produce. The result is a show with many of Shakespeare’s most famous characters, speaking some of his most famous lines – out of order, to the wrong character, and sometimes confused with other lines! The outcome is a humorous smorgasbord of love lost, love found, lust, dramatic tension and absurdity with love potions, sleeping potions and death potions! All of this, and music to boot.

Dinner is available from 6 pm to 7:30 pm for those who are interested, and bar service is also available. For online tickets click here. To reserve tickets by phone call (506) 874-7365.
