- A Very Funny Tragedy – By Bloody Bawdy Villains

In the center of the image, a close-up of a middle-aged man with brown beard, hair and eyes, underlined with kohl, resting his chin on his hand, on which he wears a silver skull ring. He looks somewhat forlornly, directly into the camera. To his left, in the background, a woman with a nose ring and red lipstick can be seen lustfully poking a finger into his ear. To his right, at the bottom of the picture, half the face of a woman can be seen, nestled against him, looking up at him. © Johannes Greisle

In this production of Hamlet I’m going to play Hamlet and I’m going to do all the soliloquies and it will be really good. Nicole and Ela will play most of the other characters but I will also play some of the other characters because I’m really good at playing lots of characters. There will also be some singing and dancing and even if you don’t like Shakespeare you will like this because we make it really clear and really good. Please come because we’ve been rehearsing for ages and it’s going to be really really good.

P.S. I told Nicole and Ela that the audience will pick who plays Hamlet but nobody will want them to play Hamlet because I’m way better at playing him.
