Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the theatre...the Reduced Shakespeare Company boldly goes where few would dare - Tinseltown! America's "bad boys of abridgement" take on America's largest cultural and economic export (well, except for weapons) in this seriously silly showbiz satire.
The RSC rummage through the reels and flick through the films in this riotous carnival of the classics. Giving Hollywood more than just a nip and a tuck, they cut through the celluloid to condense the 186 greatest films in Holylwood's into a complete compilation of classic cinematic clichés - plus a few brand new clichés they just made up.
"One of the greatest, sustained pieces of physical comedy I have ever seen.There are brilliant pieces of comic invention. Go see. Buy tickets now." - BBC.
"You'll nearly fall out of your theatre seat laughing." - The Arizona Republic.
Written and Directed by Reed Martin & Austin Tichenor.
