Reduced Shakespeare Company’s “The Complete World of Sports (abridged)” comes to Merrimack Repertory Theatre in Lowell, Massachusetts for its East Coast premiere September 9 – October 3, 2010.

The “bad boys of abridgement” sprint through the world of sports at record-breaking speed in this brand-new championship comedy. From the earliest cavemen playing “Neanderthal in the Middle” to your own kid’s soccer practice, it’ll be a marathon of madness and mayhem as the entire history of world sports explodes in a tour de farce of physical theatre. It reduces every sport ever played on every continent in the entire history of the world.

Is Bowling really a sport? What about Poker or Competitive Eating? Which is more boring – Baseball or Cricket? Who invented Curling and Synchronized Swimming and why in the world are they in the Olympics? The Complete World of Sports (abridged) is a profound piece of theatre for even the most intractable couch potato. As America’s infatuation with all things athletic continues, The Complete World of Sports (abridged) is a show whose time has come!
