“English class meets Monty Python”–The Washington Post

Davidson welcomes back the bad boys of abridgement as they tackle the literary canon. In All the Great Books (Abridged), 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 works. 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 83 of history’s preeminent books.

All seats reserved.

Davidson Students: $8
Davidson Faculty/Staff: $15
Public: $20
