Originally commissioned by The Court Theatre and The Christchurch Arts Festival.

This isn't the Shakespeare you learnt at school.

Hamlet is a zombie-battling warrior, Ophelia is a robot and even video game character Mario makes an appearance.

Gamers, Shakespeare buffs and comedy fans alike will all enjoy this inventive, interactive and hilarious parody of video games that takes the most famous of Shakespeare’s stories into the digital world.

Loaded with heaps of humour and nods to dozens of video games; we guarantee that you’ve never seen the Bard this bad-ass!

“This is the perfect introduction to Shakespeare for the Playstation generation,” Craig Cooper, Festival Artistic Director.

To the point: Shakespeare becomes video game parody/inventive and interactive/humour and Hamlet/witty and spontaneous.

Duration: 75 minutes

Suitable for ages 13+.
Warning: contains coarse language.
