The title gives it away. This is not your standard Shakespeare but a hilarious piece of controlled anarchy that lasts 90 minutes and is directed by Dmitry Krymov, who runs his own laboratory at the Moscow School of Dramatic Art. Commissioned for the RSC's World Shakespeare festival, the production heads to Edinburgh next week. I would urge you to catch it if you can.
