Lost’s first five seasons to be reduced to 10 minutes by the Reduced Shakespeare Company

Lost - season 6

Although you can catch up with Lost‘s first five seasons in just eight minutes if you want, if you have 10 minutes to spare, the Reduced Shakespeare Company are planning on reducing Lost’s first five seasons themselves

The final series of Lost starts on Sky1 and Sky1 HD on February 5th and to celebrate The Reduced Shakespeare Company are putting on one of their unique performances condensing the last 5 seasons into less than 10 minutes. The result will be performed in front of a live audience of Lost fans. The event takes place in Covent Garden, London on Thursday 28th January at 7.30pm.

To be in with a chance of getting a pair of tickets to the event all the fans have to do is email their name, contact number and the email address of their plus one to [email protected]. The winners will then be selected and notified if they have received tickets on Tuesday 26th January.

The Reduced Shakespeare Company is a three-man comedy troupe that have succeeded in abridging the complete works of William Shakespeare and even the complete word of God. So surely, the last 5 seasons of Lost will be a walk in the park.

I’m told there’ll also be a video preview by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and the footage will be available after the event, so I hope to post that for those of you who can’t make it or aren’t lucky enough to get tickets. Good luck though everyone!
