Hamlet's Fool

A wistful and insightful glimpse into the soul of Shakespeare's Hamlet

Hamlet's Fool

Commissioned by the Arts Initiative at the Ohio State University to commemorate the third year of their international partnership
with the Royal Shakespeare Company.
 
Hamlet's Fool serves to give a voice to Yorick, whose skull is exhumed by the Gravedigger in Shakespeare's Hamlet.  Known simply as 'The Fool', he is outwardly in complete control as the Lord of Misrule, but when a new fool is introduced to the court and adopted by The Queen, a sinister edge begins to emerge. Hamlet's Fool echoes the original play but has the freedom to be its own story as it suggests a prequel to this tragic drama.
 
Written and Performed by Peter Cutts
Directed by Mandy Fox
 
Premiered at the Ohio State University in 2012 as part of the Year of Shakespeare Celebrations
