The Festival Brings The Bard Outdoors [Again]!

By Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield
New Revisions by Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield
Directed by Matt Pfeiffer

June 28 to July 16 | Outdoor Stage

PSF will be heading outdoors for an updated revival of the raucous three-person comedy, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) [revised] [again]. We invite you to hang out in a new theatre space in front of the DeSales University Trexler Library to witness three well-intentioned but misguided actors attempt to take on Shakespeare’s entire canon in 99 minutes, in this recently revised version of a familiar favorite. If you like Shakespeare, you’ll like this show. If you hate Shakespeare, you’ll LOVE this show. Bring the family for the Bard turned upside down and be prepared to laugh until it hurts. Ages 7+

Originally produced by Reduced Shakespeare Company.

New Outdoor Stage

Director Matt Pfeiffer brings the Bard outdoors again following PSF’s first fully produced outdoor production A Midsummer Night’s Dream in 2021. Pfeiffer is looking forward to returning to outdoor performances, he says, “The experience we had with Midsummer was so celebratory and free. When Complete Works was originally made, it was often done outside. There was a looseness and adaptability to this at its core, so there is some connective tissue to the roots of the piece as an outdoor performance or a street performance.” The open-air environment of this new festival stage, according to Pfeiffer “lends itself to feeling more spontaneous—I think the whole summer is an attempt to really put the capital “F” back in the Shakespeare Festival, and Complete Works is just a perfect expression of that—a perfect expression of effervescent joy.”
