"Hamlette! Mark me! Why art thou wearing so much eyeliner?"

Imagine if you will that "Hamlet" was not "Hamlet" at all, but "Hamlette" - a woman!

This play is a twisty-turny interpretation of the classic Danish tale. Why spend four hours telling the story when five actors can get the job done in thirty minutes?

Great for competitions. Elsinore has never been this funny!
