Spymonkey's The Complete Death's Nov 30 - Dec 11, 2016  
Chicago Shakespeare Theater Spymonkey's The Complete Death's
There are 74 onstage deaths in the works of William Shakespeare-75 if you count the black ill-favored fly killed in Titus Andronicus. From the Roman suicides in Julius Caesar to the death fall of Prince Arthur in King John; from the carnage at the end of Hamlet to snakes in a basket in Antony and Cleopatra. And then there's the pie that Titus serves his guests. Spymonkey will perform them all-sometimes lingeringly, sometimes messily, sometimes movingly, sometimes musically, but always hysterically. The four "seriously, outrageously, cleverly funny clowns" (Time Magazine) will scale the peaks of sublime poetry and plumb the depths of darkest depravity. It may even be the death of them. Directed by Tim Crouch (I, Malvolio, An Oak Tree, Adler & Gibb), The Complete Deaths is a solemn, somber and sublimely funny tribute to the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death.
