Bad Hamlet

"Bad Hamlet," Oct 2010. Pictured: Luka Glinsky and Marrick Smith.

Bad Hamlet is a one-act play co-written with Lillian DeRitter (who blogs at Lillian Lemoning). The project began in the fall of 2010 with the idea of a chorus of Hamlets performing the “To be, or not to be” speech. From there it became an examination of the differences between texts, performances, and scholarly interpretations of Hamlet, a search for an answer to the question, “Is there such a thing as the true Hamlet?”
