Please, Continue (Hamlet)

Yan Duyvendak and Roger Bernat
Australian Exclusive

Something is rotten in the state of Victoria.

As a homicide trial unfolds, a young Hamlet stands accused of murdering Polonius. The case may sound like a familiar drama, but everything else here is the real deal.

Actual barristers, a legitimate judge, court psychologists, stenographers and QCs: this is no mock trial and no two performances are the same. All play their part and they play to win, but the fate of a youth hangs in the balance, and in the end it’s a real jury—perhaps including you—who will decide Hamlet’s innocence or guilt.

With this dynamic and gripping work, Dutch and Spanish provocateurs Yan Duyvendak and Roger Bernat interrogate one of the defining institutions in our civic society, examining the lines between truth and justice, theatre and law.

A chillingly clever production… mixing theatre and courtroom, Shakespearian tragedy and legal comedy.” - ART PRESS
