THE ‘greatest hits’ of the Bible will entertain audiences at the Wyvern Theatre next month.

Following the sell-out success of their 2013 UK Tour, The Reduced Shakespeare Company will perform The Bible: The Complete Word of God (abridged) on March 1.

The Reduced Shakespeare Company is a three-man comedy troupe that takes long, serious subjects and reduces them to short, sharp comedies.

Performer and director, Matt Rippy, said: “You will see stories from the Bible from cover to cover. It has everything from fig leaves to the final judgement.

“If you don’t know your bible then this will be not only educational but enlightening and hopefully fun. Our show is a celebration of the Bible, religion and faith.

“It’s right for everything we would like to do – reduce something big and important into something bite size and entertaining. There are so many great stories in the bible and we cover them all.”
