Shakespeare- Reduced

The Reduced Shakespeare Company runs through the complete works of Shakespeare in an hour and a half.  It is not exactly Shakespeare in the Mountains where we only manage five plays in five days.  I saw the performance years ago near Covent Garden in London.  It reminded me of the Tom Stoppard play Dogg’s Hamlet and Cahoot’s Macbeth.  If you look for this on Youtube you will find countless school performances.

Here is a performance by Texas State University:

They give the performance a lot of gusto and energy, don’t they?
