Reduced Shakespeare Company

Reduced Shakespeare Company and Seabright Productions present

William Shakespeare’s Long Lost First Play (abridged)

By Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor
 
Acclaimed stars of the West End stage, the Reduced Shakespeare Company, are back with another barnstormingly irreverent and breathtakingly hilarious celebration of our cultural heritage – as seen through the eyes of three Americans wearing trainers.
 
In a better-late-than-never nod to Will’s 400th anniversary, the bad boys of abridgement present this ‘new’ play by the man himself, as discovered in a Leicester car park! All of the Bard's greatest characters and plots feature in this single work of dramatic genius, that he later decided to turn into 37 separate plays - in a move that Hollywood studios would have admired, if they'd been around in the 16th century.
 
The play, mercifully abridged by the RSC from its full hundred hour running time to a more palatable ninety minutes, embarks on its debut UK tour following world premiere seasons at the renowned Folger Shakespeare Library and the Edinburgh Fringe.

★★★★★

'Something wickedly funny this way comes!'
National Public Radio
 
‘Reduced Shakespeare Company shows are non-stop gag-fests and Long Lost is no different!’
Sonoma Gazette
 
'If you like Shakespeare, you'll love this show. If you hate Shakespeare, you'll love this show!'
