2. WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE'S LONG LOST FIRST PLAY

February 16, 2018
Montgomery County Community College
Address: 340 DeKalb Pk, Blue Bell, PA 19422
Phone: (610) 718-1800
Time: 8:00 PM
Price: $10-$26

Last year (2016) marked the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s passing. Commemorations took place all over the world. While performing in England in 2016, the Reduced Shakespeare Company uncovered a manuscript that turned out to be the literary Holy Grail: “William Shakespeare’s Long Lost First Play! (abridged).” They actually found this centuries-old manuscript in a parking lot in Leicester, England.

In the spirit of Shakespeare himself, RSC shows contain some occasional bawdy language and mild innuendo. All children (and parents) are different, so they've chosen to rate the shows PG-13.

Walnut Street Theatre
Address: 825 Walnut St., Philadelphia, PA, PA 19107

Winner of over twenty 2016 Best Play Awards, including the Tony Award! After a sleepless night, Erik Blake has brought his family from Pennsylvania to celebrate Thanksgiving at his daughter's new apartment in lower Manhattan. As darkness falls outside the crumbling pre-war duplex, mysterious things start to go bump in the night and family tensions reach a boiling point. The angst, anguish and amity of the American middle class are first coaxed - then shoved - into the light in this sidesplitting, hopeful and heartbreaking new play. Entertainment Weekly raves The Humans is "hilarious and unforgettable - the best play of the year!" ​
