NON-STOP LAUGHS: A trio of performers will rattle through the complete works of Shakespeare at Gorleston’s Pavilion Theatre next month.

The Seagull Rep follow their hugely successful tour of Fawlty Towers with their production of the Reduced Shakespeare Company classic – shrinking 37 plays and 154 sonnets into one extraordinary performance.

Originally staged in 1987, The Seagull are proud to present Dave Hemsted, Ewa Jaworski and Will Isgrove to perform the show in which Titus Andronicus becomes a cookery programme, Othello is performed as a rap and Hamlet is done backwards in around 30 seconds.

Billed as “bawdy, irreverent and madcap” the play is said to contain non-stop laughs delivered at a whirlwind pace.

l Catch it on February 8-9 at Gorleston Pavilion Theatre. To book call 01493 662832. Tickets £10, £8, £5 for
