Kirkland & Rafalat direct ‘The Prince of Denmark’

“To see or not to see, that is the question”

Here is the latest by the uber talented comedy duo, Alex Kirkland and Robert Rafalat.  “The Prince of Denmark” is part of the British Council ‘Shakespeare Lives’ Series.

In this comical take on Shakespeare’s tragedy,  Hamlet freshly returns from uni and discovers that something isn’t quite right at home.
