Super Hamlet 64

Super Hamlet 64
Packed full of physical comedy, live music and 16 bit animation, Edward Day loses all of his extra lives in this modern take on Hamlet, Shakespeare's famous exploration of ambition and mortality. Rewritten with over a hundred geeky references to the past 40 years of gaming, we’ve turned Ophelia into a kickass heroine with a penchant for samurai swords, the famous graveyard scene into philosophical zombie shootout, and the final fight with Laertes into an epic boss battle with a giant mechanical beast.

Edward Day is a trans/non-binary spoken word artist, animator and theatre maker from Swindon and trained at Lecoq and Alra. This year he's also been touring Too Pretty To Punch, a one person show about transphobia.
"Day never ceased to impress, like a man posessed at times, effortlessly switching between characters...the best original play I have seen."
