The so-called ‘bad’ quarto of Hamlet is the perfect script for a moved reading: half the length of the more familiar version, with a little less poetry and a lot more action.
Join us on Wednesday, May 24 from 4-6 for an unrehearsed performance at breakneck speed on UWA’s New Fortune stage. Everyone who wants to perform will have the chance to claim a role, (script provided) and groundlings (standing spectators) are welcome. There will be sitting space on the steps so bring a cushion for comfort!
No need to register: just turn up with friends and family (children welcome). In case of inclement weather, the event will be rescheduled.
