About

The lunacy of sports collides with lunatic wit in the Reduced Shakespeare Company's newest production, The Complete World of Sports (abridged). From the earliest cavemen playing "Neanderthal in the Middle" to your own kid's soccer practice, the entire history of athletic competition is celebrated in a tour de farce of physical theater. Is Bowling really a sport? What about Poker or Competitive Eating? Who invented Curling and Synchronized Swimming and why in the world are they in the Olympics? In the words of one critic, "It's a triumph of speed, endurance, comic timing, high-scoring wordplay, a sharply satiric game plan and an all-out embrace of sports as fun." If you're a sports fan, you'll like this show. If you're not a sports fan, you'll love this show!
