when you thought it was safe to go back to the theatre - you were
wrong. In one evening three Francis Marion University Theatre
students will perform a feat never before attempted in the history of
the University. They will perform the complete works of
Shakespeare in one evening of theatre.
Theatre Majors Brad Sponic, David Sistare, and Andrew Cogswell will attempt to cover all of Shakespeare's plays in one sitting. This humorous (and some might think irreverent) covering of the Bard's plays is an attempt as the script puts it: "to makes these musty old plays applicable to a present day audience." Approaches to the plays include such applications as Titus Andronicus as a cooking show, and the complete histories as a football game.
The Francis Marion University Theatre opened its season with Jules Feiffer's Feiffer's People. The winter production was for colored girls who have considered suicide when the rainbow is enuf by Ntozake Shange.
