WAITING FOR HAMLET
Winner of the 2018 Kenneth Branagh
New Drama Writing award
This comic drama locks King Hamlet and Yorick in a battle of wits between two old fools, but only one of them knows he’s a fool. Murdered by his brother, the king refuses to take it lying down. Can Yorick stop him making the biggest mistake of his afterlife? This a story of love, pride, loss, legacy and letting go. And hats. Hats are important. When you’re dead, it’s not a question of to be or not to be, it’s about how not to be.
Performed by Nicholas Collett & Tim Marriott
