IF YOU want to be able to say you have seen every one of Shakespeare’s 37 plays you are in luck as the Reduced Shakespeare Company are back on tour.

The three-man comedy troupe takes the famous works of Shakespeare and transforms them into short, sharp comedies.

The company toured in 2013 and 2014 and now they are back with The Complete Works Of William Shakespeare (Abridged).

The show was the longest-running comedy in London’s West End, clocking up nine years on the stage and, at one point, the Reduced Shakespeare Company had more shows running in the West End than Andrew Lloyd Webber.

The show will be at the Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre in Taunton on Saturday from 7.30pm. Tickets, priced £14-16, are available from the box office on 01823 414141 or online via

The play will also be at Komedia in Bath on July 10. Doors will open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start and tickets, priced £17, are available from the box office on 08452 938480 or online via
