Reduced Shakespeare to Take THE BIBLE: THE COMPLETE WORD OF GOD (ABRIDGED) on Tour, Spring 2014
Newbury Productions (UK) Limited present REDUCED SHAKESPEARE COMPANY in THE BIBLE: THE COMPLETE WORD OF GOD (abridged), written by Adam Long, Reed Martin & Austin Tichenor in a UK tour, Spring 2014. From Fig Leaves to Final Judgment!
Following the sell-out success of their 2013 UK Tour it's apocalypse now as the three cultural guerrillas of The Reduced Shakespeare Company set their reductive sites on the good book with The Bible: The Complete Word of God (abridged).
Can bolts of lightning be far behind?
Yes, it's an affectionate, irreverent roller coaster ride from fig leaves to Final Judgment as the 'The Bad Boys of Abridgement' tackle the great theological questions: Did Adam and Eve have navels? Did Moses really look like Charlton Heston? And why isn't the word "phonetic" spelled the way it sounds?
Whether you are Catholic or Atheist, Muslim or Jew, Protestant, Atheist or Jedi, you will be tickled by the Reduced Shakespeare Company's romp through old time religion.
Remember... Someone is watching.
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.
The company's first three shows, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), The Complete History of America (abridged) and The Bible: The Complete Word of God (abridged) enjoyed a nine-year run at the Criterion Theatre in Piccadilly Circus. Not only were they London's longest-running comedies, but 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...
Prior to their 2013 tour the "other RSC" were last seen in the UK with their highly successful Complete World of Sports (abridged) which toured the country before completing a season in London's West End during the 2012 Olympics.
