Kanadehon Hamlet is a backstage comedy about the first production of Hamlet in Japan - Shakespeare meets Kabuki in this sparkling, clever play based on historical fact.

Back in Tokyo, he persuades the famous impresario Morita Kanya XII to let him direct his Kabuki stars in the first performance ever of a Western play. The actors struggle with Shakespeare's tale of revenge, war and ghosts until they realise the parallels with Kanadehon Chushinguru - the Tale of the 47 Ronin or masterless samurai
