Description

Fortinbras is a crazy funny comedy that continues the story of Shakespeare's Hamlet. Fortinbras, Prince of Norway, waltzes into the castle of Elsinore "just to say hi" on his way home from war when he stumbles into a room full of dead royals and the kingdom he is now in charge of. But who's going to believe that crazy story about love letters, pirates, and murder plots? Fortinbras thinks he can make up (oops!) tell a better story. So what if it's not the truth...? From alluring ghosts to accidental hangings, this modern sexy comedy shows what happens when we ignore the truth. As Fortinbras says, "There's a lesson in that."

This show contains some sexually explicit language and actions and is not suggested for children under 13 years of age.

WARNING: THIS SHOW CONTAINS STROBE LIGHTS.
