Hamlet II

by Sam Bobrick (Original story by William Shakepeare)

Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

Not a sequel, exactly, but a loose retelling of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy played strictly for laughs, with an irritable ghost, a pregnant Ophelia, and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern a la Groucho Marx.  Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, knows something is rotten – but finds himself quoting Edgar Allen Poe while debating whether to be.  Or, you know, not to be.  Is that the question?
