SYNOPSIS: What happens when a bad writer combines Romeo and Juliet and Hamlet and throws in a pinch of Taming of the Shrew for seasoning? Chaos and comedy. Wilma Shakespeare, an unpublished romance writer who claims to be a descendant of the "Bard," writes her own tragedy because Will's plays are nothing but "old-fashioned soap operas." She also decides to act in her own masterpiece as the nurse. The only resemblance her play has to a Shakespearean tragedy is that everyone dies in the end—except for her, of course. Outraged by Wilma's atrocious writing, the chorus can stand no more: it's time for revenge, Shakespeare style. Easy to stage and written in rhyme, Haunted Hamlet is fun and challenging. Shakespeare may roll over in his grave, but your audiences will love it!
