Most Absurd

Most Absurd

Shakespeare wrote many a sublime line, but our focus for the MOST ABSURD project is on the ludicrous stage directions, cheeky insults, and laugh-out-loud observations that highlight the Bard's lighter side. If you like optical illusions, visual puns, inside jokes, random bears, cats in too-small boxes, rogue pirates, and Scotland represented as an egg yolk, this is for you.

T-shirt and totes are available for a limited time.
