Hamlet: Prince of Skidmark
Australia’s favourite kidult comedy duo, The Listies, return to the Fest with a brand new Badaption of the Bard. This is Shakespeare Listies style: ninjas, ghosts, swords, dinosaurs and zombies. Hamlet: Prince of Skidmark is a side-splitting extravaganza that shatters the fourth wall and glues it back together with turbo-charge story-telling and silliness. Spoiler alert: everyone dies at the end – including the audience!
