I Hate Hamlet

by Paul Rudnick

Presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service

Hot, young television start Andrew Rally finds himself stuck with an elegant new apartment, a recently cancelled TV series, the lead role in a Central Park production of Hamlet...and the larger-than-life ghost of the apartment's former resident, John Barrymore. Andrew is happy to have the Shakespeare job, but to be perfectly honest, he hates Hamlet. As the late, great Barrymore presses Andrew to face his true actor's destiny and turn down more financially tempting offers, wildly funny duels of words, swords, and wit ensue.
