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. William Shakespeare’s Long Lost First Play (abridged) is a comic misadventure that will feel strangely familiar yet excitingly new.
Contains occasional bawdy language and mild innuendo. Recommended for ages 13 and up.
Reduced Shakespeare Co challenges what you thought you knew about some of your favorite classics, from introducing Hamlet's life-coach (Lady Macbeth) to revealing feuds you might not have known about between play characters, reviewed by The Washington Posthere.
Theatre at The Broad Stage is made possible in part by generous gifts from Bill & Laurie Benenson and Susan Stockel.
