In this raunchy, raucous mash-up of two of Shakespeare’s high tragedies, the Sound & Fury vaudevillians deliver some defiantly low comedy.
Making their 10th appearance at Winnipeg’s fringe, Patrick Hercamp, Richard Maritzer and Ryan Adam Wells work in a loosey-goosey quasi-improv style that really pulls in the audience. Each man takes on multiple characters, with Wells standing out as a pervy friar, Maritzer as a comically mopey Hamlet, and Hercamp — who in boy-band terms would be "the Cute One" — as drunken party-girl Juliet.
There is more madness than method to these Fakespearean antics, with the L.A.-based trio basically throwing jokes at the wall and seeing what sticks. Quite a lot does. This is the Bard played to the cheap seats — broad, bawdy and crowd-pleasing. (Though occasionally a bit bro-ish. A roofie joke about Juliet? Really?
