I Hate Hamlet August 1-31 at the Black Bart Playhouse in Murphys. With this production, audiences are invited to witness this fast-paced comedy The New York Times has called “unapologetically silly” and “affectionately amusing.”

Here's a quick synopsis...and then you can BUY YOUR TICKETS at www.murphyscreektheatre.org or call (209) 728-8422. :)

Andrew Rally, a successful television star who seems to have it all: a starring role in a hit television series, a rich and beautiful girlfriend, a glamorous agent; the perfect New York apartment and the chance
to play the role of Hamlet in Central Park. However, things are not always as they seem. Andrew’s series has been cancelled; his girlfriend is clinging to her virtue with unyielding conviction; and, to make matters worse, he hates Hamlet. The dilemma deepens with the entrance of John Barrymore’s ghost, who returns, intoxicated and in full Shakespearean costume, to his old home – Andrew’s “perfect” New York apartment.

I Hate Hamlet will play Fridays and Saturdays at 8PM and Sundays at 2.

Review from The Union Democrat of I Hate Hamlet!

"...Don Bilotti as the ghost of Barrymore makes his entrance dressed in full Hamlet regalia, drawing on his extensive stage experience to bring buoyant life to this pivotal role. It is remarkable to observe how much he can convey with a brief facial expression or a raised eyebrow. In a wickedly funny performance, Bilotti plays his role with the bravado it deserves, but never at the expense of others."

Performances are Friday and Saturday at 8pm, and Sundays at 2pm.

Join us for this fast-paced comedy The New York Times has called unapologetically silly and affectionately amusing.
