Coming Soon: The Shakespeare Conspiracy, by Chris Hislop

Wednesday, 27 April, 2011

6 – 10 June, at the Chelsea Theatre, London SW10

The Shakespeare Conspiracy promises an epic comedy featuring a familiar Shakespearean line up of characters including Lady Macbeth, Juliet, Iago, Benedick & Beatrice, Richard III, Tybalt, Mercutio, Helena, Puck and some surprise villains.

In a world where 400 years ago Shakespeare’s characters came to life and started wandering about like everyone else: a near catastrophic incident, forced a shadowy government agency, calling themselves the RSC, to round up all Shakespeare’s villains and incarcerate them in a top secret maximum security prison, The Globe Theatre.  The villains’ leader – one Aloysius Archbald Iago – has been making plans and it is said if the villains are freed, they will set in motion a chain of events that will lead to the end of the world. Mankind’s last hope is a travel agent.

Well, it all sounds very lively (if  a bit spurious) but tickets are £12.00 and its nice to see the Chelsea Theatre actually putting on plays again (so John Park instructs me to say).
