Synopsis

Friends, Romans, Countrymen, lend me your ears! I come to present Shakespeare like he hath never been seen before upon thine eyes in Malta!

Shakeshorts presenteth unto you, a rendition of Shakespeare that hath been condensed in length and acted out in brevity using wit, jest and silly hats: perfect for young minds full of mischief.

This most excellent show is written by Chris Dingli (with the help of one William Shakespeare), and is full of jollity, excitement and naughtiness. Thy kids will not sit passively by and watch some old fart drone on about the Big S. Nay! Children verily will be encouraged to participate and will experience to world of the play itself!

Written and performed in a humorous style that will allow Maltese children to enjoy the stories, and identify with themes and characters whilst gaining confidence with the language, Shakeshorts is most certainly an excellent introduction to Shakespeare (and medieval insults, but that’s just a bonus).
