Produced by: Newbury Productions (UK) Limited in association with York Theatre Royal
The original "bad boys of abridgement" are back in the UK following a highly successful run in New York and a sell-out US tour of The Complete World of Sports (abridged).
In this merciless but affectionate satire, The Reduced Shakespeare Company canter through the entire history of athletic competition in a marathon of madness and mayhem that sees the world's great sporting events shrunk down to theatrical size.
The result is a tour-de-force comedy that will delight every sports and non-sports fan in the family. Every sport ever played on every continent in the entire history of the world in under two hours!
Let the games begin!
York Theatre Royal hosts the UK premiere ahead of a nationwide tour and the show’s West End premiere in this 2012 Olympic Year.
‘Owes as much to the insanity of Monty Python as to the inanity of actual sports programs.’
