History is normally written by the winners... now it's the RSC's turn.

children (and parents) are different, so we've chosen to rate our shows PG-13:
Pretty Good If You're Thirteen.
Since its pass-the-hat origins in 1981, the Reduced Shakespeare Company has
created ten world-renowned stage shows, two television specials, several failed
TV pilots, and numerous radio pieces, all of which have been performed, seen,
and heard the world over. The company’s itinerary has included stops
off-Broadway, at the White House, the Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, London’s
West End, Seattle Repertory Theatre, American Repertory Theatre and Montreal’s
famed Just For Laughs Festival, as well as performances in Israel, Australia, Hong
Kong, Japan, and Singapore, plus countless civic and university venues
throughout the USA, the UK, and Europe. The
RSC won the prestigious Shorty Award in New York City and the Delft
Audience Award in Holland. They’ve also been nominated for an Olivier
Award in London, and two Helen Hayes Awards in Washington,
DC. For National Public Radio, the RSC
has been heard on All Things
Considered, Weekend Edition, Talk of the Nation, and To The Best of Our Knowledge.
