Helga is mourning. And pondering. And mourning some more. And pondering some more. Her mother is dead from natural causes – or so she thinks, until her dead mother returns as a ghost and tells her the truth: It was not of natural causes. It was murder. Now her mother needs Helga to avenge her death. But avenging her would force Helga to take action instead of pondering... all the time. Perhaps she should just go mad. An uproariously dark comedy that follows Shakespeare's Hamlet while taking some unforeseen and bizarre twists. Good news... everyone still dies. It is a comedic tragedy, after all. Along the journey, there are betrayals, sword fights, scenes of madness and laughter, ghosts galore, a love story of sorts, a demise non-demise, lots and lots of pondering questions without answers, and a destroyed pillow. Oh, and all the genders have been reversed.
