I am performing as 8 different characters in the ensemble of BlackSpear Productions “Hamlet” at the Shop Theatre. I laugh, I cry, I snoop and a whole bunch of other things!
BlackSpear Productions rather unorthodox production of the Bard’s masterpiece will re-imagine Hamlet as a young female royal in a modern world.
Hamlet will be female, played by a female actor.
Staying true to the original dialogue, the intention is that their contemporary take will not skew the heart of this iconic tale, but rather help awaken and refresh the character dynamics, struggles, and poetry that have made this piece the timeless classic it is today.
