Isaac Asimov once said that everything that can be said about the human condition can be found in two books: The Holy Bible and The Complete Works of William Shakespeare.

Scott Cox has a passion for Shakespeare and for bringing his words and characters to life on stage. He has created an entertaining, enlightening and educational piece of theatre that will give you a newfound respect for Shakespeare. "Living Shakespeare" takes you on a journey through the stages of life as seen through the works of the greatest dramatist in the history of the English language. The goal is to make you think and laugh at the wit and wisdom of a man whose vision of humanity was truly ahead of his time.
