There are 75 onstage deaths in the works of William Shakespeare: From the Roman suicides in Julius Caesar to the snakes in a basket in Antony & Cleopatra. Spymonkey will perform them all – sometimes messily, sometimes movingly, sometimes musically, but always hysterically.
The four “seriously, outrageously, cleverly funny clowns” (Time Magazine) will scale the peaks of sublime poetry, and plumb the depths of darkest depravity. It may even be the death of them.
Adapted and directed by Tim Crouch (I, Malvolio, An Oak Tree, Adler & Gibb), The Complete Deaths will be a solemn, sublimely funny tribute to the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.
