(Applause Books). To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Reduced Shakespeare Company's classic farce, two of its
original writer/performers (Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield) have thoroughly revised the show to bring it up to
date for 21st-century audiences, incorporating some of the funniest material from the numerous amateur and
professional productions that have been performed around the world. The cultural touchstone that is The Complete
Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) was born when three inspired, charismatic comics, having honed their
pass-the-hat act at Renaissance fairs, premiered their preposterous masterwork at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in
1987. It quickly became a worldwide phenomenon, earning the title of London's second-longest-running comedy after a
decade at the Criterion Theatre. The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) is one of the world's most
frequently produced plays, and has been translated into several dozen languages. Featured are all 37 of
Shakespeare's plays, meant to be performed in 97 minutes, by three actors. Fast paced, witty, and physical, it's
full of laughter for Shakespeare lovers and haters alike.
