Simon Cole blogs on behalf of fellow tour mates Jack Bennett, John Kielty, William Meredith, Neil Hobbs, and Mishi Bekesi, who are touring the UK in The Bible: The Complete Word of God (abridged). Greetings from the road and the first in a hopefully weekly blog of the UK Bible boys adventures on the highways and byways of the English (and Welsh!) countryside. Our hope is to give you an insight into the adventures we get up to on the road and a glimpse into the process which makes the Reduced Shakespeare shows such a pleasure to perform on a nightly basis to the good brethren (and sistern!) of the UK.Our story begins on the upper floors of a pub in Balham where Colonel Rippy put us through our paces with Austin flying over and joining us at the start of the rehearsal process and Reed joining us for the last part in Stratford on our opening shows.
