Shakespeare’s ‘Long Lost First Play’ Coming To Reston Community Center This Weekend

Just when you thought knew every story Shakespeare had to offer, this show comes along.

The Reduced Shakespeare Company will perform “William Shakespeare’s Long Lost First Play” on Friday and Saturday nights at Reston Community Center’s CenterStage (2310 Colts Neck Road). The nationally touring comedy troupe claims the 90-minute play is an abridged version of a 100-hour-long work written by a 17-year-old William Shakespeare.

“We are totally not completely making this up,” they say in promotional material.

Typical to other Shakespearean works, the troupe says, the play contains “occasional bawdy language and mild innuendo.” With that in mind, the shows are rated PG-13 — “Pretty Good If You’re 13,” they say.

Tickets to the performance are $25 for Reston residents and $50 for non-residents. For more information, visit the Reston Community Center website.
