William Shakespeare’s Long Lost First Play

March 26 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

| $30-$60

rsc_longlost-ad1a3047_jeff-thomas-768x452While touring England, the Reduced Shakespeare Company uncovered a manuscript that turned out to be the literary Holy Grail: William Shakespeare’s long lost first play! No, really. We found this centuries-old manuscript in a parking lot in Leicester, England. We are totally not making this up.

Every famous character and Shakespearean plot device come together in a single story so comically outrageous it’s no wonder the Bard of Avon hid it away. 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 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.

With occasional language and mild innuendo this show is rated PG-13.
