What's Next - after 'Hogfather'?
Dogg’s Hamlet, Cahoot’s Macbeth
Words are a game – they only work when you know the rules…
In a very unusual school, final preparations are underway for a special version of one of Shakespeare’s finest plays. But it isn’t just the Bard that the pupils are having trouble understanding…
Later, a group of actors under surveillance by the secret police are putting on Macbeth in a living room. A smug inspector gatecrashes the performance; the show must go on, but how?
How are the two linked? And how on Earth do you stage Hamlet in 13 minutes?
This fast-paced, physical comedy about nonsense, language, and power is Stoppard at his most playful.
