SPEARE!: A Theatrical Medley was a forty five minute revue written by Slappy Cromwell.

Based on the entire works of William Shakespeare, it was a rewrite intended to attract the pirate masses to the theatre.

Cromwell was unhappy about creating the work, but felt compelled to when nobody was coming to his real Shakespeare performances.
