In this solo performance, Hamlet first speaks as a "role" that was created 400 years ago, then as the fictional character who suffers the death of his father and remarriage of his mother. He also puts on a hood to enact the Gravedigger. He dies after each performance of Hamlet, and resurrects when curtains open again. Many famous soliloquies are recited, intermingled with new lines.
