ABOUT THE SHOW:
“Shakespeare as it was back in the Bard’s day: bawdy, irreverent, sublimely entertaining.” -- The Miami Herald
THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (abridged) was born when three inspired, charismatic comics, having honed their pass-the-hat act at Renaissance fairs, premiered their preposterous masterwork at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 1987 and quickly became a worldwide phenomenon, earning the title of London's longest-running comedy after a decade at the Criterion Theatre.
THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (ABRIDGED) is one of the world's most frequently produced plays and has been translated into several dozen languages. Featured are all 37 of Shakespeare's plays, meant to be performed in 97 minutes, by three actors. Fast paced, witty, and physical, it's full of laughter for Shakespeare lovers and haters alike. There is never a dull moment in this hilarious production!
ABOUT HELVETIA WINERY
Helvetia Vineyards and Winery is located in the foothills of the Tualatin Mountains, the northernmost grape growing area in the Willamette Valley. Only minutes away from both Nike Headquarters and the Intel Hillsboro campus, and 25 minutes from Downtown Portland.
The vineyards are located just above the Tualatin Valley floor between 450’ and 650’ elevation. Cascade and Helvetia soil types predominate. The Cascade soils consist of sedimentary soils deposited in the Valley by the Missoula Floods about 15,000 years ago. The Helvetia soil types consist of weathered soils deposited by the volcanic eruptions from the Columbia River Flood Basalts 1.5 million years ago.
