SHAKESPEARE'S boys are back in town as they attempt the complete works of the Bard in 97 minutes,

All 37 plays will be performed at the Alban Arena for one night, January 18, in humorous style following a stint in London's West End.

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) takes a look at Hamlet forwards, backwards and sideways while Titus Andronicus becomes a cookery programme and Othello a rap.

And, as the comedies aren't anywhere as near as the tragedies, all 16 comedies are condensed down into Four Weddings and a Transvestite.

The West End's longest-running comedy - 10 years at the Criterion Theatre - has since conquered the entire globe.

It starts at 8pm. Tickets are £17.50.
