Hear ye, hear ye, good gentlefolk of the Mendocino coast! The Mendocino Theatre Company presents WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE’S LONG LOST FIRST PLAY (Abridged) by Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor, directed by the venerable Ricci Dedola (The 39 Steps, Bob: A Life in Five Acts), in which three actors play over forty-seven characters in just ninety minutes! This hilariously irreverent mash-up of the beloved Bard’s entire canon has witches, wizards, masters, servants, lovers, fairies, lasses, perverts, monarchs, twins and even a bear. Watch the mischievous fairy Puck (Mija Biggie) and the airy spirit Ariel (Nicole Traber) use Shakespeare’s characters as chess pieces in an epic battle of magic.
