The Lensic presents Reduced Shakespeare Company's William Shakespeare’s Long-Lost First Play (Abridged)

The Reduced Shakespeare Company (RSC) is a three-man comedy troupe that takes long, serious subjects and reduces them to short, sharp comedies. In this “tale told by idiots,” the Company weaves all of The Bard’s famous characters, greatest lines, and magnificent speeches into a brand-new Shakespearean smorgasbord that erupts when Puck & Ariel hijack the plot of Comedy of Errors, creating such new and strange bedfellows as Kate and Beatrice, Hamlet and master motivator Lady Macbeth, Dromio and Juliet, as well as King Lear and his three daughters who turn out to be the three weird sisters from Macbeth. William Shakespeare’s Long-Lost First Play (abridged) is a comic misadventure that will feel strangely familiar yet excitingly new. 

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. 

“Something wickedly funny this way comes! and wickedly smart, too, as you’d expect from the ‘other’ RSC.”  —Bob Mondello, National Public Radio
