A comedy spoken word show about videogames and Shakespeare.
Inspired by films like Scott Pilgrim Vs The World, Tron and Wreck it Ralph, and with references to almost every videogame ever made, Super Hamlet 64 is fast paced retelling of Shakespeare’s most famous play, full of live music, interactive video projection, 90s nostalgia and comedy songs.
Lecoq trained Edalia Day couples Shakespeare's soliloquies with modern poetry, in this high octane comedy, exploring ideas of adulthood, ambition, gender and our fragile relationship with technology.
★★★★★ “Day never ceased to impress, effortlessly switching between characters…the best original play I have seen.” - Theatre Bath
★★★★★ "Thrillingly funny and highly inventive."
★★★★ "A cleverly written piece of theatre that makes an excellent use of technology"
"Day is a tour de force"
“A total blast. Witty and playful with a super kinetic central performance. A really fun, geeky hour.”
"For the purist Shakespeare fan, I suspect that this was an intolerable bastardisation of a beloved script."
Duration: 1 hour, 20 minutes + interval.
Suitable for ages 7 and up.
