The Reduced Shakespeare Company presents the literary sensation of the Century!
Discovered buried beneath a parking lot in Leicester, UK, next to a pile of old bones, an ancient manuscript proves to be the long-lost first play written by none other than seventeen-year-old William Shakespeare
It's a discovery that has thrilled scholars across the world
The Holy Grail of English literature
An original manuscript, quilled by the Bard's own fair hand, featuring his most famous characters and familiar speeches
Presented in a brand-new story ...
An ancient grudge pits Puck against Ariel and turns Shakespeare's canon upside-down
Creating such strange bedfellows as Hamlet and that master motivator Lady Macbeth
And Viola and Richard III
And King Lear and the Weird Sisters
And - of course - Dromio and Juliet
Using questionable scholarship and street-performer smarts, playwrights Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor weave together most of the famous speeches and plot devices of Shakespeare's 39 plays to create a fast and funny fortieth, filled with witty wordplay and vaudevillian variety
And twins, twins, lots of twins!
