Every Other Hamlet in the Universe
A World Premiere play by Kimberly Rosenstock
Marcel Sr.’s Hamlet would have been the greatest Hamlet of all time—if he’d ever performed it. Instead, ten years after his death, it’s his computer programmer son who finds himself inadvertently playing the Melancholy Prince: in the basement of the family home for an audience of just his mom. Every Other Hamlet In The Universe is a play about the mantles we carry for our flesh and blood, and the roles we throw ourselves into when life becomes a kind of calamity.
Featuring: Tomas Andren, Trai Byers, Will Cobbs, Laura Gragtmans, Fisher Neal, Sarah Sokolovic, Shannon Sullivan
