Pick a play, any play!

Sarah Cohen's SHAKESPEARE ON REQUEST, a combination of improv, stand-up comedy, and monologue madness, was conceived, written and directed by Sarah Cohen, with the assistance of William Shakespeare, Christopher Marlowe, and John Webster.

One actor (Sarah Cohen) and one plastic skull (named Larry) perform selections from all 38 plays of Shakespeare, plus two bonus plays, over the course of about 2 hours. The audience members decide which selections are performed, and in what order. Silly hats are donned, sugary treats are consumed, and a fun time is had by all.

8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays
July 8-9, 15-16, 22-23, 29-30, 2005
Thistle Dew Dessert Theatre
19th and P Streets, Sacramento, CA
$20, including dessert, $10 if you are a returning patron or wearing the costume of your favorite Shakespearian character

Reservations: (916) 444-8209

There will be one dinner theatre performance on Friday, July 22. Dinner will be provided by Gina's Caffe. The ticket price on that night will be $34 for dinner and show. No discounts are available for the dinner theatre night.

Because many patrons find that their appreciation of Shakespeare is enhanced by the consumption of intoxicating beverages, audience members over the age of 21 are encouraged to bring a bottle of wine to the theatre, to enjoy along with their desserts. There will be complimentary wine on opening night (Friday, July 8). Please drink responsibly, and remember--the views expressed by Sir John Falstaff, Sir Toby Belch, and Christopher Sly are not necessarily those of Shakespeare on Request or the Thistle Dew Dessert Theatre.
