The Complete Works of William Shakespeare is a madcap comedy, in which three actors make an attempt to stage all 37 of Shakespeare's plays in less than two hours ‘of blood, sweat and tears’! It has been one of the biggest success stories in the history of London’s West End.

The Madhouse Theatre Company has been playing their unique version of this hugely entertaining piece to full houses across Europe for a number of years, and will be playing this month, for two nights only, at the Théâtre Les 50 in Saint-Jean-de-Gonville, France.

The play flows at breakneck speed, with the three members of the company, Matt Devere, Mike Kelly and Andrew Hefler, playing all the roles, be they male or female, young or old.  Watch the stories unfold within the framework of a game of American football. Come and see Othello, brought to life by gangster rap, and observe how Hamlet is portrayed in just 20 seconds.  This play definitely has to be seen to be believed.


The play will be performed on Saturday, 22 February at 20h30 and Sunday, 23 February at 13h30 and 17h00.  Tickets will cost 20 € for adults, 15 € for students and members, and 10 € for children less than 12 years old, or school groups.  Reservations can be made on the theater website at www.theatreles50.fr, by email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
