The Complete World of Sports (abridged) archiveThe 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!
