Rose of Athens is “bringing the jokes and the bad wigs” to Ashford Manor for its annual Shakespeare on the Lawn production and making a departure from their usual classics by the Bard: They’re doing them all. Written by The Reduced Shakespeare Company and directed by Danielle Bailey Miller, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) is exactly what its title claims: three very silly actors performing all of Shakespeare’s plays in around 90 minutes, including the world’s shortest version of Hamlet and a football version of all the history plays. Preview nights on July 22–23 cost $7, and regular shows on July 24–26 cost $12 for students and $16 for adults. Picnics welcome.
8 p.m. $7–16. roseofathens.org
