Hamlet Collage

Rehearsals have begun.
The Fall production is a project based on the Marowitz Hamlet. HAMLET COLLAGE poses the question how we, who may not even have read Shakespeare's Hamlet, view the everyman Hamlet - the person, the play and the myth.

Imagine watching an episode of the Simpsons (the one which contains a parody of Hamlet) and suddenly the Ghost (it is speculated Shakespeare played the ghost) snatches you and drags you into the mind of Hamlet, only you hardly know what is happening. HAMLET COLLAGE cuts & pastes traditional readings, modern interpretations, rewritings and foolish misconceptions into a theatrical collage something close to a subconscious mash-up. Have you been transported into the mind of Hamlet or is Hamlet all in your mind?
