Frequently Asked Questions: To Be or Not to Be
Celebrated New Zealand actor Michael Hurst joins forces with two of New Zealand's freshest young writers in an innovative new work, set in the Shakespearean afterlife. In Royale Productions' Frequently Asked Questions: To Be or Not to Be, etc. an insomniac named Hamlet returns home to discover a script documenting the end of his life. He begins some serious late-night soul-searching: What a piece of work is a man? To be or not to be? These are his FAQs. And Hamlet can't sleep until he knows. In his debut solo work,Hurst melds his mastery of the Shakespearean form with an irreverent comic edge. One minute Hamlet is questioning his existence over a box of noodles; the next he is in conversation with himself, as Macbeth, Othello, and King Lear invade his room and relive their own death scenes in front of him. All this builds to an unforgettable battle sequence in which Hurst unleashed 30 years of stage combat experience. . . on himself.
written by William Shakespeare, Michael Hurst, Natalie Medlock & Dan Musgrove. aka No Holds Bard
