16 characters.

A tour de force solo performance.

For every great tragic hero, there is an equally great, tragic, bit part.

Let’s get this straight… this is NOT Hamlet’s story.


Medieval Europe.

Plagues, death, squalor.

The occasional disembowelment.

General unpleasantness.

Against this backdrop a nutrition, luck and talent starved minstrel is suddenly and unexpectedly offered the holy of holies… a chance to become one of the elite. A King’s Player… in the Danish court of Elsinore.

This radiant solo performance brings 16 characters to life in an unforgettable show about fathers and sons, actors, success, poverty, Shakespeare and Elsinore.
