Synopsis:

The fastest, most epic, insightful and FUNNIEST introduction to the most challenging works of the greatest author of all time! Straight from SOLD OUT PERFORMANCES at the Orlando Fringe Festival, where the Orlando Weekly called it “Spookily impressive… a torrent of knowledge… a do-not miss show.” A rapid-fire retelling of Shakespeare's ten history plays, KING JOHN, RICHARD II, HENRY IV, PARTS 1 & 2, HENRY V, HENRY VI, PARTS 1, 2 & 3, RICHARD III and HENRY VIII: the most famous and most profound speeches of those great plays, filling in crucial gaps of what Shakespeare leaves unsaid as well as the history he REWRITES in the process! Hurtling through Shakespeare's richest poetry and Mooney's playfully impetuous perspective, "Shakespeare's Histories" isolates the precise facts needed to make characters, plot nuances and levels of intrigue come vividlyalive and stick in our heads! It provides a singular frame that frees the audience to understand the other "twenty nine hours" of Shakespeare's epic history cycle. Ever wonder which King Henry is which? Why was King John such a weasel? What is "the most pandering, politically calibrated speech in all of Shakespeare?" "Shakespeare's Histories" is willing to poke gentle fun at these plays and their author. Contemporary and hilarious, “Shakespeare’s Histories” leaves the audience filled with ebullient energy, mischievous wit and “feeling smarter!” “It’s like running a Shakespeare Marathon in just one hour!” “Comparable to Carl Sagan’s history of the cosmos. Only faster, and funnier.”
