In this hysterical (and completely fictional) prequel to Hamlet, nothing is rotten in the state of Denmark! But when a crisis hits the convent, eager and decisive Hamlet leaps into action with his best bud Ophelia and jester friend Yorick to SAVE. THE. NUNNERY!
A fast, funny, and physical extravaganza filled with scary ghosts, wee Scots, singing nuns, and a mysterious vassal in the castle, Hamlet and Ophelia navigate their parents and their own feelings while putting on a show – what could possibly go wrong?
“Hilarious! A love letter to one of Shakespeare’s most challenging and complicated plays.” Napa Valley Register
“Attains satirical heights for which most comedians wouldn’t think to reach.” Bob Mondello, National Public Radio
