HMLT Matinee Performance
Saturday, January 18, 2014 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM (EST)
New York, NY
Zemwerk proudly presents HMLT, a darkly comic tale of blood, sweat, and murder. Co-written by award-winning playwright/actor/director Stella Maria Perry and director/writer/actor/designer Oisin McGillion Hughes, HMLT is a full-length play based loosely on Shakespeare's Hamlet and Dark Lady Sonnets, as well as the works of Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges. Director Oisin McGillion Hughes augments the text with inspirations ranging from 1920s German Expressionism to the punk scene of 1970s London. HMLT follows the melancholy Prince through a modern-day labyrinth of social barriers and expectations as he struggles to extricate himself with the guidance of a mysterious book containing a meta-history of his life, commentary on the original play Hamlet, and cryptic clues that force him into an investigation of human nature and the essence of self. HMLT will be presented at the Producers Club's Royal Theater on Saturday, January 18th, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 at the door, or $10 (plus processing fees) if purchased online in advance. Please print out and bring your electronic tickets. Visit www.zemwerk.com for further information.
