Super Hamlet 64

 

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.

The show is now available to watch online, subtitled and/or audio described at www.gumroad.com/edaliaday

"For the purist Shakespeare fan, I suspect that this was an intolerable bastardisation of a beloved script."
