Medieval Europe, plagues, death, squalor and general unpleasantness. Against this background a luck and talent starved minstrel is offered that theatrical holy of holies… 
a paying gig, a chance to become one of the elite… 
in the Danish court of Elsinore.

For every great tragic hero there is an equally great tragic bit part.

Shakespeare meets standup as one man – via 14 characters (including a sick castle and three naked hand puppets), tells one of the greatest stories never told.
