All The Great Books (Abridged)

Opening Times

Sorry, this event has passed

All The Great Books (abridged) is an uproarious roller-coaster ride through a comically compact compilation of the world's greatest literature! Watch as 3 actors cover over 90 books in 90 minutes from 1984 through Wuthering Heights. Everyone from the illiterate to the literati will love this refresher of literature's greatest hits including Huckleberry Finn, The Odyssey, Green Eggs and Ham, Pride and Prejudice, The Bible, Harry Potter…and more! Sold-out audiences who raved about our "abridged" version of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare, surely will flip as we present All the Great Books (abridged)!
