And the Standard has a pair of tickets worth £32 to give away to one lucky reader.

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

Since 1981, ‘The Bad Boys of Abridgement’ have created eight stage shows, two television specials, several failed TV pilots and numerous radio pieces, all of which have been performed, seen, heard and translated into Klingon the world over.

The Bible: The Complete Word of God (Abridged) is at the Trinity Arts Centre in Gainsborough on Saturday 22nd March at 7.30pm.

Following the sell-out success of their 2013 UK Tour, it’s apocalypse now as the three cultural guerrillas of The Reduced Shakespeare Company set their reductive sights on the good book with The Bible: The Complete Word of God (Abridged).

Yes, it’s an affectionate, irreverent roller coaster ride from fig to Final Judgement as the boys tackle the great theological questions such as did Adam and Eve have navels?

Did Moses really look like Charlton Heston?

And why isn’t the word ‘phonetic’ spelled the way it sounds?

Whether you are Catholic or Atheist, Muslim or Jew, Protestant or Purple People Eater, you will be tickled by the Reduced Shakespeare Company’s romp through old time religion.

Tickets are priced at £16 and £14 for concessions and tickets are available by calling 01427 676655.
