NORFOLK, VA - The Reduced Shakespeare Company is a three-man comedy troupe that takes long, serious subjects and reduces them to short, sharp comedies. The “Bad Boys of Abridgment” have a new show coming to Norfolk May 26-28 as part of the Virginia Arts Festival's Norfolk Fringe Festival.

Its "the long-lost first play written by none other than seventeen-year-old William Shakespeare."  And they insist they are "not completely making this up."
