Shakespeare Smackdown

★★★★'Intelligent, uproarious, laugh-a-minute fare' Telegraph  

★★★★★ 'Hilarious. The bard has never been this much fun' Three Weeks 

★★★★★ ‘The true cream of the crop… a demonstration of supreme theatrical improvisation.’ The 730 Review 

From the creators of Olivier Award-winning Showstopper! The Improvised Musical, this is
competitive  improv as you've never seen it. Honouring ancient Athenian traditions, two
rhapsodes, Adam Meggido and Sean McCann, compete to improvise a fully authentic
Shakespearean masterpiece on the spot. Featuring rap, poetry slams and any writer from the last 3,000 years, from Homer to Pinter, from Poe to Dr Seuss.

A unique celebration of the poetic, the dramatic and the absurdly comic, this show will change the way you think about improv and – quite possibly - Shakespeare.

★★★★★ ‘Simply jaw-dropping… This show needs to be seen by everyone. There is no reasonable excuse for not going.’ Broadway Baby 

★★★★ ‘The confidence with which the two of the leapt into verse, so sure that the rhymes would come to them, was dazzling from the first minute to the last… this really can’t be missed.’ Peg Review 

★★★★ ‘[A] triumph… Highly recommended.’ UK Theatre
