El Paseo Arts Presents: William Shakespeare’s Long Lost First Play

  • South Padre Island, TX (map)

One of the most regrettably overlooked fake news stories of the past year is the discovery of William Shakespeare’s first dramatic work. Discovered in a treasure filled parking lot in England (next to a pile of bones that didn’t look that important), an ancient manuscript proves to be the long-lost first play written by none other than seventeen-year-old William Shakespeare from Stratford. Abridged down to 90 minutes, thanks to the able minds of the Reduced Shakespeare Company, this plot of a lost masterpiece begins when Puck and Ariel hijack the plot of Comedy of Errors. In the Long Lost First Play, the company weaves the Bard’s most famous characters, greatest lines, and magnificent speeches into an entirely new, comic tour de force. As National Public Radio says, “something wickedly funny this way comes! … and wickedly smart, too.”
