Haunted House Hamlet
November 30 - December 10$25.35
It is present day, and your typical Canadian punk, Jimmy “Spider” McKuen, stumbles upon an old (haunted) mansion. There he meets none other than the Prince of Denmark himself, Hamlet. Captivated by the classic tale he is reminded of, from his brief school days, he follows Hamlet, Ophelia, and the rest of Shakespeare’s characters.
The Haunted House Hamlet is designed so that audience members can structure their own experience of viewing it. Nothing repeats and there are three simultaneous areas of action, so people must choose what to see.
You can go anywhere in the house at any time. Audience members are free to open doors and walk into ongoing scenes. If the action moves to another location, they can move with it, or stay where they are. When scenes end, there are slight holds to allow audience members to enter and leave, but if they wish to stay in a room, the action is continuous!
