Fancy seeing a lost Shakespeare play? Yes, its true beyond the more familiar titles, Shakespeare dabbled in script doctoring, sometimes adding little sections to other people's plays. Hudson

Shakespeare presents one of those plays that explores a real life tale of lust and plotted murder but with a decidedly sitcom like bent. More commonly known as "Arden of Faversham", the play follows the wealthy landowner Thomas Arden as he tries to find out once and for all if his flighty and amorous wife, Alice, is having an affair with the lowlife Mosby. The pair are indeed carrying on an affair and are actively trying to kill Arden. While Alice and Mosby are great at having an affair they really stink at murder and hire a pair of even more inept career criminals, Black Will and Shakebag
to do the deed. The 4 enlist others to help them out with one more over the top murder plot after the other. Set in a 1950's sitcom world, the play is a cartoonish black comedy with a twist ending.
