All The Great Books (Abridged)
By Reduced Shakespeare Company
Directed By Wesley Ellul

14 May. 10 - 30 May. 10


“English class meets Monty Python” - The Washington Post

“Raucously funny! Inspired, crazed ridiculousness!” - Buffalo News

“Laugh out loud hilarious.” - Washington City Paper

“Brilliant, surreal comedy. Street buskers for educated grown-ups.” - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

 

Following on from our massive success with The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), Mellow Drama is staging another masterpiece of comedy from the Reduced Shakespeare Company.

 

Confused by Confucius? Thoroughly thrown by Thoreau? Wish Swift was swifter? Tennyson tinier? Then buckle up and hop aboard as our three cultural guerrillas zip through everything you didn’t get around to reading in school.

 

This time three actors will take you through history’s most famous literary works in just 90 minutes. It is a rollercoaster ride of laughter that will have audiences rolling the aisles. And, quite probably, one or two of the cast as well, if rehearsals are anything to go by.

 

The cast for this play consists of some of Malta’s finest comic actors namely John Montanaro, Colin Fitz and Marc Cabourdin. The production is being directed by Wesley Ellul.

 

Mellow Drama’s production of All the Great Books (abridged) is being held at St James Cavalier in Valletta over three weekends in May starting from the 14th.

 

Ticket prices start from €10 for the opening weekend. Follow the links on this page to buy your tickets online now.

 

Trust us, watch this and literature will never look the same again!

John Montanaro
John Montanaro -

John started acting at the age of 16 when he took part in a production of the play whose name we cannot mention (just in case). Next up was a small part in HMS Pinafore where he met Pia who introduced him to the world of MADC. Since then John has never looked back, taking part in many one-acts, pantos, musicals and farces at a wide variety of venues. He also enjoyed an entertaining stint as Gabriel in the television series Angli. His recent shows for Mellow Drama include Kissing Sid James, An Evening with Gary Lineker, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), Unoriginal Sin, All the Great Books (abridged) and Gasping. Throughout his acting career, John has always enjoyed making people laugh and that is why he jumped at the chance to be a co-founder of Mellow Drama.




Marc Cabourdin
Marc Cabourdin -

Marc began acting at the tender age of 14 graceing the stage of the Manoel Theatre, for the Christmas Pantomime "little Red Riding Hood" way back in 1990. This was the first step in a long theatrical journey which saw him take on several roles  here in Malta from the ever loved Danny Zuko in Grease, the seduced Nick in Who's afraid of Virgina Woolfe to the football mad Degsy in God's Official.  His love of theatre propelled him leave fair Malta and further persue his passion in the UK, where he received a MA in Acting from the East 15 School of Drama in London.  Following several roles in the UK including perfomances at The Royal Opera House, Buckingham Palace, and on the BBC, Marc returned to Malta to open the Carmelite Priory Museum, a centre where spirtuality meets the arts.
