Written by Simon Peacock
Originally commissioned by The Court Theatre and 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.

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