OUR CURRENT PRODUCTION

MERCURY HAMLET is performed just about anywhere, in just about 100 minutes, by an ensemble of actors prepared for just about anything.

Each week, in front of the audience, the assembled performers draw cards to determine which of ten roles they will perform when the play begins.

Conventions around age, gender, race, and type are irrelevant, as actors and audience are caught up in the remarkable excitement, electricity, storytelling, and energy that is MERCURY HAMLET.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

AN ACTORS’ HOME

Imagine working weekly with a band of talented professionals who can step into any of ten demanding roles at a moment’s notice. Imagine being part of an ensemble with whom you have invested the time, sweat, heart, and creativity to let it all go and seek the truth of the moment – regardless of role, venue, gender, or race.

 

A NEW AUDIENCE

Our non-traditional approach to the play’s casting, editing, and production is not designed merely to be fun for the performers, but to reinvigorate Shakespeare as theatre for all – not only the highly educated and the elite. In a bar, in a theatre, in a gym, in the park, we will gather and listen, to tell our story wherever others are willing to gather and listen.

 

A FUTURE

We rehearse weekly on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights. We are currently growing the ensemble and the process, in order to begin performing regularly through the summer of 2020. If you have questions about our company, or would like to be added to our mailing list to keep apprised of opportunities to join us, please contact us.
