(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.… (més)

I loved these guys in high school, both live and in print.
I was a super-fun teenager. ( )

In all honesty, I didn't read this. Instead, I watched it. Since it was already a play, there was absolutely no injustice. I swear.

Some parts were really funny, like the Othello rap and the football Histories, while others kinda fell flat like the 16 comedies in one. And then there was Hamlet. The audience's workshop of Ophelia's scream was not only deconstructionist, but it actually WORKED. I was a bit surprised that the obviousness of their method actually pulled off an emotional response in my chest. Who'd have thunk?

Sure, the whole thing was corny and forced, but that was kinda the point. Why else would anyone reduce anything to absurdity?

I think I want to make one of Titus's famous rapist pies for lunch.

Very funny, very good! I've seen several versions of this (including an original on youtube) and I've loved it every time. ( )

This is one of the funniest plays I've ever read. Monty Python and the Marx Brothers meet Wm. Shakespeare. I think you'll get along quite nicely! ( )

Extremely hilarious. The script is almost every bit as funny as the show is live, and the multitude of outrageous footnotes makes this a book worth reading even for someone who has seen the play before. ( )
