Burnham-On-Sea theatre to host 'hilarious and irreverant comedy'

A 'hilarious and irreverent celebration of Britain's cultural heritage' will be performed in Burnham-On-Sea this week.

'William Shakespeare's Long Lost First Play (abridged)' is set to visit Burnham's Princess Theatre this Friday (10th February) from 7.30pm.

"!Acclaimed stars of the West End stage, the Reduced Shakespeare Company, are back with another barnstormingly irreverent and breathtakingly hilarious celebration of our cultural heritage - as seen through the eyes of three Americans wearing trainers" said a spokesman.

"In a better-late-than-never nod to the Bard's 400th anniversary, the bad boys of abridgement present this 'new' play by the man himself, as discovered in a Leicester car park!"

"The show, mercifully abridged by the RSC from its full hundred hour running time to a more palatable ninety minutes, embarks on its debut UK tour following world premiere seasons at the renowned Folger Shakespeare Library and the Edinburgh Fringe."

Reduced Shakespeare Company and Seabright Productions will present the show, which is by Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor.

Tickets cost Standard £18/Concessions £16 are available from the box office on 01278 784464.
