The world famous Reduced Shakespeare Company is coming to Barnard Castle for the very first time on Saturday the 15th March 2014. The company's style has been described as "New Vaudeville," combining both physical and verbal humour, as well as high brow and low brow.
The Reduced Shakespeare Company is a touring American acting troupe that performs fast-paced, seemingly improvisational condensations of huge topics. It's apocalypse now as the three cultural guerrillas of The Reduced Shakespeare Company set their reductive sights on the good book with The Bible: The Complete Word of God (abridged).
Yes, it’s an affectionate, irreverent roller coaster ride from fig leaves to final judgment as 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” spelt the way it sounds?
Whether you are Catholic or Protestant, Muslim or Jew, Atheist or Jedi, you will be tickled by the RSC’s romp through old time religion.
OneT of the many press comments about the show:
‘This is a slick, fast, very funny show... skilled performers with immaculate, sassy American timing.’ - The Times‘
