The Reduced Shakespeare Company

William Shakespeare’s Long Lost First Play (abridged)

Written and Directed by Reed Martin & Austin Tichenor 

“A hoot! Consistently funny!” – British Theatre Guide

“Breathlessly irreverent and pun-filled romp.” – The Washington Post

Location: The Broad Stage - Main Stage
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.

The Washington Post Praises Reduced Shakespeare Co for Their Humor And Dedication

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 Post here.

Theatre at The Broad Stage is made possible in part by generous gifts from Bill & Laurie Benenson and Susan Stockel.
