Bogan Shakespeare - Melbourne Fringe

14 Raglan Street, North Melbourne, Victoria, 3051
27 - 29 Sep 2018

Bringing the Bard to the Backyard. Shakespeare gets the bogan treatment whether he likes it or not. Mixing classic literature and Aussie humour. William Shakespeare is widely considered the greatest English playwright, and his plays are still performed around the world, even 400 years after his death.

But who actually understands what the heck he was on about? Modern audiences often find "The Bard" confusing, frustrating, boring, irrelevant, incomprehensible and downright stupid. Bogan Shakespeare changes all that, and brings some of his classic works to life in easy to understand and relatable language, that any Aussie can comprehend.

Funny, irreverent, dramatic, serious, inappropriate, fast and crazy all at the same time, this is the treatment and interpretation everyone has been waiting for, and might make Willy role in his grave.

Presented in Melbourne Fringe by the award-winning Here There and Everywhere Theatre Co who presented Melbourne International Comedy Festival hits "Couples" and "Table 17".
