Secrest Series: Reduced Shakespeare Company

Veteran performers Off-Broadway, at the White House, the John F. Kennedy Center, and Lincoln Center, this three-man group of Shakespearean pranksters presents their most recent production, William Shakespeare’s Long Lost First Play (Abridged).

Called “A breathlessly irreverent and pun-filled romp!” by the Washington Post, the production proposes that Shakespeare had written a recently-discovered rough draft of all his plays that presents his most famous characters interacting comically onstage together. Theatrical zaniness? Yea, verily.

Tickets for the community are $5-$18

Wake Forest University and Medical School faculty, staff and retirees receive free admission for themselves and one guest to each Secrest Artists Series performance. WFU Students receive free admission for themselves. Simply show your WFU I.D. at the door.

We encourage those with a WFU I.D. to pre-register so we can keep track of available seats for the community at large.
