In 1599, Shakespeare wrote a play called Hamlet.
Hamnet is too young to understand Shakespeare. And he is one letter away from being a great man. We are too old to understand Hamnet. How close are we to greatness? We meet in the middle, in a theatre, in purgatory: youth reaching forward to a life it will never know, an audience reaching back to a life it has forgotten.
From the makers of the Fringe First and OBIE Award-winning LIPPY and Chekhov’s First Play, Hamnet is a solo work for an 11-year-old boy.
