Shakespeare Shorts: Hamlet and Romeo & Juliet
Presented in English
"Hamlet's got the hump, Uncle Claudius is conniving, mother Gertrude's hit the bottle, and girlfriend Ophelia's away with the fairies. No wonder Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are confused. Mysteries, murders and magical music; Bathasar's bemused, Romeo's a wuss and the Friar's on the fiddle, but Juliet Capulet calls the shots in an ice cream war with the Montagues. Rip-roaring romance with a twist.” --description from Fringe Festival programme.
