Little Dickens. Short Longfellow. Reduced Proust…
All the Great Books. Less is More.
The Literary Canon explodes as the bad boys of abridgement unleash a brand-new comic outrage on an unsuspecting public. America’s best loved comedy troupe takes you on a ninety-eight minute roller-coaster ride through its compact compendium of the world’s great books in All The Great Books (abridged).
Confused by Confucius? Thoroughly thrown by Thoreau? Wish Swift was swifter? Tennyson tinier? Then buckle up and hop aboard as the three cultural guerrillas of the Reduced Shakespeare Company zip through everything you didn’t get around to reading in school.
