The Complete History of America (abridged): Election Edition
Written and Directed by Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor

“A slapstick tour that’s as hysterical as it is historical.”
 Bob Mondello –Washington City Paper

We open the 2016-2017 Lyceum Series in honor of the upcoming election with The Reduced Shakespeare Company (RSC).  In a University setting, what better way is there to decide the future direction of our country than to undertake a serious exploration of our history?  (This is NOT it!)

Who will be our next President -- Donald Trump? Hillary Clinton? Kim Kardashian? In The Complete History of America (abridged): Election Edition the RSC will provide the historical context that is guaranteed to confuse any American voter. Just in time for the 2016 Presidential Election, the Reduced Shakespeare Company returns with 600 Years of History in 6000 seconds!

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

In the spirit of Shakespeare himself, RSC shows contain some occasional bawdy language and innuendo. All 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.
