Codpieces by Perry Pontac

To be or not to be?' may be The Question, but it is not the only one.
Hamlet, Part II, for example, answers a question about Hamlet that has plagued scholars, readers and play-goers for over four hundred years: What happened next?

Prince Lear tackles yet another conundrum: What happened just before the start of King Lear, setting in motion the improbable events of Act I, scene 1?
And in Fatal Loins, the question answered by the play is directly posed in the prologue: 'If Juliet and Romeo survive / Will their eternal passion stay alive?'

'I am no stranger to Shakespearean parody... but reading Pontac I am (only slightly) mortified to find that he can write cod Shakespeare much better than Peter Cook, Jonathan Miller, Dudley Moore or myself' - Alan Bennett, from the foreword

'Perfect if you want something intelligent and hilarious to stage, perhaps with students. Each play is an accomplished, laugh-aloud Shakespeare parody." - Susan Elkin, The Stage

'Highly amusing... These works may be short, clearly designed to fit into a slot in 30 minutes or so, but the quality of the writing and intelligence of the playwright shines through... It is greatly to be hoped that a stage producer decides to take an option on these plays, as well as commissioning many more since they would surely delight any discerning theatrical audience' - British Theatre Guide

'a phenomenally intelligent and perfectly crafted trio of Shakespeare trilogies.. A delightfully witty and entertaining collection' - Buzz Magazine
