With rising tuition fees and the value of higher education being increasingly called into question, Shirley Halse has condensed three years worth of the BA curriculum down into a far more efficient one hour show. We start the course with some ridiculous Old English, zip through bawdy Chaucer, needy Sidney, catty Dryden, loved-up Keats, moody Larkin, Woolf, and finally check in at Literature in the 21st century. No essays required.
First performed as part of the Cheltenham Literature Festival Lit Crawl 2018, The Reduced Literature Degree will be touring through Summer 2019, including Barnstaple Fringe Festival and Camden Fringe Festival. Get in touch if you would like to host The Reduced Literature Degree in your venue.
