IF you fancy an evening of hilarity and slightly surreal mad-cap comedy then the Corn Exchange has just the thing for you.

The Reduced Shakespeare Company has resurrected their third and most comically bizarre offering so far and they are coming to Ipswich next week.

In 'The Bible: The Complete Works of God (abridged)', this more than a little eccentric trio ask those life changing questions we all long to know the answers to.

Did Adam and Eve have navels? Was Jesus a good carpenter? And most importantly, did Moses really look like Charlton Heston?

The trio was born in San Francisco in the early 80s and came over to England in 1987. Not content with reinterpreting Shakespeare these boys broadened their horizons with this rather surreal look at The Bible.

The group claim they were inspired by a book they found in a hotel room.

In this brand new production the boys gallop from Eve to Exodus, through the epistles, the apostles and the gospels, via fig leaves and the final judgement.

It opened in London at the Gielgud Theatre in 1997 and toured with rave reviews and packed audiences.

If you would like to catch this unique performance here in Ipswich then they are on at the Corn Exchange on January 26 at 7.45pm.

For more information about tickets call the Corn Exchange box office on Ipswich 433100.
