In addition to Shakespeare's text, this play includes a collage of material including Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights, Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead and the poetry of Sylvia Plath, and is complete with singing, dancing and lip syncing performances of the music of Kate Bush, Fiona Apple, Regina Spektor and more. Adapted and directed by Atticus Belmonte.

Masks Recommended. The Audience will be asked to walk up and down stairs and traverse dimly lit spaces. Some flashing lighting effects in use.
