The Reduced Shakespeare Company is coming to Ely as part of its summer tour of the country.

A three-man comedy troupe featuring Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield, the Reduced Shakespeare Company takes long, serious subjects and reduces them to short, sharp comedies.

Since 1981, the group has created eight stage shows, two television specials, several failed TV pilots and numerous radio pieces.

The company’s first three shows, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), The Complete History of America (abridged) and The Bible: The Complete Word of God (abridged) enjoyed a nine-year run at the Criterion Theatre, in Piccadilly Circus.

Not only were they London’s longest-running comedies, but at one point the Reduced Shakespeare Company had more shows running in the West End than Andrew Lloyd Webber.
