The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) is a chance to experience the plays of William Shakespeare as you never have before. His 37 plays have been condensed into an irreverent romp which moves at furious pace for 97 minutes. This amazing production has travelled the world, with shows in the US, New Zealand, Canada and Japan, as well as a 10-year run at the Criterion Theatre in London’s West End. This production with informs and entertains about one of the most significant historical literary figures is coming to the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. Praised by the Los Angeles Times, it was described as “wildly funny” and the Montreal Gazette called it “the funniest show you are likely to see in your entire lifetime!” Meanwhile, the New York Times described it as: “Pithier than (Monty) Python. Irresistible!”. The production is the seventh stage show of The Reduced Shakespeare Company, a three-man comedy troupe that takes long, serious subjects and reduces them to short, sharp comedies.
