Andrew, an aspiring actor, has landed the role of a lifetime as Hamlet. There is just one problem…he hates Hamlet. As fate would have it, Andrew’s new Manhattan residence is the former apartment of the brilliant actor John Barrymore, whose portrayal of Hamlet was legendary. When Barrymore’s ghost appears to Andrew, he mentors Andrew on all the tricks of the trade. Will Andrew’s debut be a triumph or a tragedy? Find out in this fast-paced, fencing-packed and funny play.
