The Complete Works of Shakespeare

Given how much theatre there is for people to see, and particularly how many Shakespearean productions there are, you’d think that most regular theatregoers could claim to have seen all of the Bard’s works. But theatres have their favourites and so whilst there’s plenty chance to see some of them, others remain sadly neglected. I’ve only counted theatrical productions and when I’ve seen the same one more than once, I’ve still just counted it the once.
