Hamlette

Hamlette

by Allison Williams

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!

Humor worked with both young and young at heart! :)

This is a great play. It checks many of the boxes required for a high school, one-act play competition. You can keep it simple or add sets and costumes.
