When someone you work with is better than you at everything, it can be frustrating. Now, the best way to combat this without forsaking your soul is to make fun of them in a non-threatening manner. This is the tack the writers of The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abridged) took: Othello as a rap song, Titus Andronicus as a cooking show, the reduction of Macbeth to a single duel. The Duncanville Community Theatre, 106 S. Main St., will take a stab at offending the great scribe this weekend. Performances are at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. Tickets range from $10 to $12 and can be had by calling 972-780-5707.
Thursdays-Saturdays. Starts: July 18. Continues through July 26, 2008
