“There’s something rotten in the State of Denmark, boys and girls, and it isn’t the cheese.”
— DC Theatre Scene
It is five years after the tragic events that ended Shakespeare’s HAMLET and Elsinore is ruled by a zombie king. Humanity on the brink of extinction, Lady Mac, Juliet and a seriously peeved Ophelia are brought back from the dead to battle the Zombies and Denmark’s new King of Pain. Blood, limbs and jokes fly in playwright Qui Nguyen’s love letter to Shakespeare, comic books and Hong Kong style action.
