Synopsis: William Shakespeare's Long Lost First Play (abridged)

An ancient manuscript is discovered in a treasure-filled parking lot in Leicester, England (next to a pile of bones that didn’t look that important). It turns out to be the long lost first play written by a seventeen-year-old Shakespeare and includes his most famous characters and most familiar speeches.

Three friends attempt to abridge this ridiculously long story and assume all the roles in this madcap crazy mash-up, led by Puck and Ariel, sworn fairy enemies.
