Desperate Housewives of Shakespeare
"It was delightful!! We produced it as a dinner theater. The puns kept coming and all ages were delighted. Bonus was a simple set. The table was set at bar height and we used bar stools, since we were playing on level with the audience, the diners. My characters dressed modern. Lord Macbeth did wear a kilt but with a black t-shirt and black socks. The audience ate it up. He also is a big man. We began with a prologue explaining the Shakespeare story each wife was from. Lord Duncan lay dead on the table during this speech. Then in dim light, Lady Macbeth and the narrator dragged him to the closet and our show proceeded. The audience was raucous. They laughed and laughed even applauded when Shakespeare revealed himself." -- Reedsburg Players, Reedsburg, WI

Desperate Housewives of Shakespeare
"This play is perfect for a high school production. It is quick and easy to stage. We staged the play in the cafeteria, like a black box type of production. The actors can perform this without having much background knowledge of the characters.  The audience loved the humor. There is a good amount of physical humor as well as written humor. The dead body in the closet is classic! We added a snare and high hat drum to the play for the pun humor!" -- J.F., Romulus Central School, Romulus, NY
