Who knew Hamlet was fast with his fists, good with a gun and even better with the ladies?

Who knew Gertrude kicked ass?

Who knew Shakespeare included a tutorial and a final boss battle?

The Court Jesters mash up video games and Shakespeare with Version 2.0 of the hugely popular genre-bending parody that scores highly with audiences.

Rebooting the story of Hamlet as a video game, this show blends Shakespeare with modern gaming culture to create a uniquely entertaining live experience. You’ve never seen the Bard this bad-ass!

Hamlet: The Video Game (the stage show) is an upgraded and remastered classic that will appeal to gamers, Shakespeare buffs and comedy fans alike.
