Definitely not your parent's Shakespeare! The "Bad Boys of Abridgment” tackle the Bard's comedies in very abbreviated form, with the help of raps, skits, off-color sound effects, Elvis sightings, and a guest spot by Elizabeth I. Fast-paced and extremely fun, this performance is sure to erase any sore memories of dull high school afternoons. The latter half of the show also includes a hilarious story about Shakespeare's little-known and highly improbable trip to America - where he was banished when his parents discovered he was a writer.
Encouraged by their success, they quit their day jobs, went broke, and wrote their first full-length show, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged), which played to 50 weeks of sold-out houses in London's Arts Theatre.
The Reduced Shakespeare Company Radio Show: Volume 3 contains two half-hour episodes (The Comedies and Shakespeare's Little Known Trip to America) of the Company's infamous BBC World Service radio series, in which they chronicle the life and work of William Q. Shakespeare.
The soul of wit: don't miss Volumes 1 and 2 of The Reduced Shakespeare Company Radio Show.
