SHAKESPEARE FOR THE MASSES

My friend Chelsea McCarthy and I adapt Shakespeare plays to make them enjoyable for people-who-don’t-enjoy-Shakespeare. The script-in-hand shows run about an hour, are fun almost to goofiness, and our supremely talented troupe (who works for free) gets it on its feet with about 5 hours of rehearsal. The Vineyard Playhouse produces us under the leadership of MJ Bruder Munafo.

The response we’ve gotten from audiences – especially educators and visiting actors/directors – has convinced us the scripts are ready for a wider audience. We’d love to share them with you. If you’re interested in checking them out, write me: nicki@nicolegalland.com You will not find a more entertaining way to turn students and Bardophobics into Bardophiles.
