Unless you've been on the planet Mars, you may well be aware of Team GB's fine efforts in garnering some medals at this year's London Olympics. But as Bradley, Jessica and Tom make dreams come true or break hearts with disappointment, the world of sport is as exciting and competitive as ever, despite the empty seats in the stadiums, the wet weather and the price of one Olympic beer costing you more than a four-pack at your usual offy.
But what is the history behind the Olympic Games and the other sports that don't get chosen for the four-yearly bonanza? What of darts, baseball, cricket and bog-snorkelling? Does anyone know what NASCAR means? From the ancient Greeks to the competitive Americans, the Reduced Shakespeare Company will have you rolling in the aisles as they cram in every fact and figure that they can muster into just under two hours.
