The Shakespeare Conspiracy at Chelsea Theatre
ACS Random presents The Shakespeare Conspiracy , a comedy by Andrew Shepherd, at the Chelsea Theatre, in south west London, from 6 to 24 Nov 2012.
Shakespeare’s characters are real. The RSC is a branch of the government. Iago is trying to destroy the world and mankind’s last hope is a travel agent called Martin. For 400 years a secret war has been waged between heroes and villains created by William Shakespeare. The heroes seem to have the upper hand, as all the villains are held in a specially built maximum security prison called The Globe, behind a magical barrier fashioned by Shakespeare himself. However there are rumours of a traitor in the RSC, the government agency responsible for his characters. Meanwhile, a travel agent from Stratford is about to have a birthday to remember as he discovers he’s our only hope should the villains escape.
