Coin & Ghost’s “BAD HAMLET”
Directed by Rob Adler

Preview: 7/25
Performances: 7/26-8/24
Thurs – Sat, 8pm
At New American Theatre

1312 N. Wilton Pl.

Coin & Ghost, LA’s theatrical home for remixed mythology, launches into their second season with BAD HAMLET — an irreverent, interactive, and inventive play that places Shakespeare’s masterpiece directly up against the many interpretations of it, whether accurate, misremembered, or re-invented entirely.

Based on the legend of “the bad quarto” — the unbelievable-but-true story of how the first published version of Hamlet was bootlegged, stolen and recreated from memory by one of Shakespeare’s original actors — BAD HAMLET will be a unique, unpredictable, and extraordinary theatrical event that explores the intersection of Shakespeare, memory, and modern technology.
