Reduced Shakespeare Company presents William Shakespeare's Long Lost First Play (Abridged)

Tuesday, Mar. 28, 2017

Thursday, April 12
7:30 p.m.
Fine Arts Center Main Theatre
Main Floor $35 • Lower Balcony $31 • Upper Balcony $25

Hang on to your codpieces! While performing in England last summer, the Reduced Shakespeare Company uncovered a manuscript that turned out to be the literary Holy Grail: William Shakespeare’s Long Lost First Play! In this “tale told by idiots,” the Reduced Shakespeare Company weaves all of The Bard's famous characters, greatest lines, and magnificent speeches into a brand new Shakespearean smorgasbord. It is a comic misadventure that will feel strangely familiar yet excitingly new.

Note: In the spirit of Shakespeare himself, RSC shows contain some occasional bawdy language and mild innuendo. All children (and parents) are different, so we've chosen to rate our shows PG-13: Pretty Good If You're Thirteen.
