The Reduced Shakespeare Company’s acclaimed stage show The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) is coming to Fenland later this month.

And one reader will win a family ticket, for four people, to enjoy the show.

The show features all 37 plays in 97 minutes. It’s an irreverent, fast-paced romp through the Bard’s plays.

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) was London’s longest-running comedy having clocked a very palpable nine years in London’s West End at the Criterion Theatre.

Join these madcap men in tights as they weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s comedies, histories and tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter.

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.
