From the producers of Shit-faced Shakespeare, a new theatrical experience:
A Palpable Hit: Shakespeare’s Top Ten Fight Scenes presented by The Gunpowder Plot
Designed for explosive action, without the lengthy buildup, these are the highlights of the Bard’s best fight scenes, shot straight out of the Canon. Alternately funny and tragic, this is Shakespearetainment at its finest.
The Gunpowder Plot is a conspiracy of some of Boston’s top fight directors and combat actors. We present a rowdy showcase of the best fights in Shakespeare’s plays. This piece explores the world of meaning, and possible story, in the stage direction “they fight.”
Swordplay, slapstick, assassination, and freestyle 'ultimate fighting' will leave audiences wanting more.

Tybalt vs. Romeo vs. Mercurio
Petruchio vs. Katharina
Hernia vs. Helena

And more surprises in the undercard!
