William Shakespeare's Long Lost First Play (Abridged)
Genesian Theatre presents
William Shakespeare's Long Lost First Play (Abridged)

15 Jan 2021 to 13 Feb 2021

by Austin Tichenor and Reed Martin

A brand new Shakespeare play has been discovered in a carpark in Leicester amidst some unimportant old bones. Written when the Bard was just a spotty 17 year old in Stratford, this thrilling manuscript seems to include the first drafts of all of his later body of work that we are familiar with today, all jumbled together in the one 100 hour play! Three Shakespearean enthusiasts have got their hands on the manuscript and are determined to present it to the good people of Sydney for the very first time ever!

Puck and Ariel battle it out in quest of the title of best fairy, Cleopatra falls for Eeyore's Bottom, Hamlet finds that Lady M is great at motivating him to be more of a 'to be' Hamlet instead of a 'not to be' Hamlet, while Lear's three daughters the weird sisters predict, incant, and prepare potions on a Scottish Moor. Since the full manuscript is over 100 hours, our gallant band may have to make some cuts during the performance, right before your eyes!

Please read our COVID Safety Guidelines before booking or attending a performance.
