Reduced Shakespeare Company

Masham Town Hall, Little Market Place, Masham
19:30

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged/revised).
Masham Arts Festival and Newbury Productions (UK) Ltd present REDUCED SHAKESPEARE COMPANY® in THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (abridged) [revised].
All 37 Plays in 97 Minutes! Now revised for 2013 with the same recycled jokes – just put in a different order. An irreverent, fast-paced romp through the Bard’s plays, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) was London’s longest-running comedy having clocked a very palpable nine years in London’s West End at the Criterion Theatre. Join these madcap men in tights as they weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s Comedies, Histories and Tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter.

The Reduced Shakespeare Company is a three-man comedy troupe that takes long, serious subjects and reduces them to short, sharp comedies. Since 1981, ‘The Bad Boys of Abridgement’ have created eight stage shows, two television specials, several failed TV pilots and numerous radio pieces – all of which have been performed, seen, heard and translated into Klingon the world over. At one point the Reduced Shakespeare Company had more shows running in the West End than Andrew Lloyd Webber. Some of them were funnier too…
