One by one, over 6 days, Forced Entertainment performers condense every Shakespeare play ever written into a series of 36 forty minute works played out on a one metre tabletop – each play comically and intimately retold via a series of lovingly made miniatures and a collection of everyday unextraordinary objects.

Forced Entertainment have long had an obsession with virtual or described performance, exploring in different ways over the years the possibilities of conjuring extraordinary scenes, images and narratives using language alone. In a brand new direction for the company, Complete Works explores the dynamic force of narrative in a simple and idiosyncratic summary of Shakespeare’s comedies, tragedies, histories and late plays, creating worlds as vivid as they are strange.
