Shakespeare’s best known play is brought vividly to life as a bunch of clowns attempt to put on their own production, in Hamlet Clown Prince.

As they try to understand it they make a mess of the work, sometimes misinterpreting the text, sometimes making a mess of the order of things as if the pages of the script got mixed up, sometimes confusing their own lives with their fictional characters. But through it all they are simply looking for the essence of Hamlet and trying to find a context for our own times.
