Join CYT as we present this hilarious Shakespearian farce, We hate Shakespeare! At least that's what the audience thinks until they get a rip-roaring rundown of Shakespeare's classics. With zombies and talking cows,  I Hate Shakespeare! is a hilarious and fast-paced introduction to Shakespeare -- with a modern twist. Plus, someone gets a pie in the face.  Whether you love or Hate Shakespeare, this is a great, education (really!) piece for students of all ages.
