The Dead Dane

| August 3, 2019


For students and lovers of ‘Hamlet’ everywhere.
Two out of work actors – Will Shakespeare and Kit Marlowe – are asked to investigate the circumstances behind a Norwegian Prince’s inheritance of a castle and lands near Helsinore in Denmark. Who is behind the deaths of five members of a noble family – and will they discover the truth before they, too, fall victim?
Having spent 30 years teaching Shakespeare’s great play, Steven Duggan has written a bawdy, irreverent reimagining of ‘Hamlet’ as a murder mystery, asking what would have happened if Horatio had been killed before he could give his story of events?
