COMMEMORATE THE 400TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE BARD’S DEATH FOR ONE WEEKEND ONLY!

THE COMPLETE DEATHS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

Join us as we slice, stab, smother, smack, shoot, grieve, poison, rend, and bludgeon our way through every death that Shakespeare staged—all the hits and all the deep cuts!

Some serious, some comic, some comically serious, and some seriously comic.

Produced in partnership with Cohesion Theatre Company, The Complete Deaths of William Shakespeare celebrates the 400th anniversary of the Bard’s death with a special blend of Elizabethan and Jacobean mayhem that we imagine would have pleased him.

Directed by Tom Delise and Alice Stanley, with fight choreography by Tegan Williams and Brad Norris, The Complete Deaths of William Shakespeare opens this Friday and runs for one weekend only! Don’t miss it!

WHERE: The Great Hall Theatre at St. Mary's, 3900 Roland Ave. (in Hampden)
WHEN: Friday, January 15 at 8:00pm, Saturday, January 16 at 8:00pm, Sunday, January 17 at 4:00pm
