Some travellers may be a little wary of Shakespearian performances due to their complicated dialogue and sometimes complex plots. However, if vacationers on holiday in Ottawa want to witness Shakespeare with a humorous twist, they can attend the I Hate Hamlet show, hosted by the Ottawa Little Theatre from November 29 to December 17.
Created by Paul Rudnick, this demonstration features some very silly takes on the historically famous Hamlet play, says the venue’s website. Talented actors and actresses will leap across the stage for fake sword fights and often jumble together some of the longer monologues to form clever and witty new diatribes.
Rudnick is an American playwright who also frequently writes for famous publications such as The New Yorker magazine. His other successful plays include The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told and Jeffery.
Tickets are on sale through the theatre’s website for this one-time event in December. Travellers enjoying the fabulous sights and sounds throughout Canada’s capital city should not miss this great theatrical performance that will surely delight visitors on their unforgettable holiday.
