Hamlet In A Hot Tub (The Movie):
A Shakespearean Farce of Never-ending Happy Endings By Raymond Helkio 04 January 2018.
In their spare time, four writers from MGT have been working on what may be the queerest movie to come out of Toronto. Toss away your notion of what a Shakespearian movie should be (heck, toss away any notion you have about how a film should be!) and prepare for Hamlet In A Hot Tub!
Hamlet In A Hot Tub follows Gertrude and Polonius as they secretly conspire to marry their children, Hamlet and Ophelia. But when Ophelia discovers Hamlet and Polonius at the baths she desperately tries to win back Hamlet, accidentally severing Polonius's manhood in the process.
Hamlet In A Hot Tub began as a play at Toronto's Rhubarb Festival performed inside their public restroom. Over the course of a year, the cast performed around Southern Ontario in unique spaces ranging from the outdoor children's waterpark at The 519 Community Centre, Glad Day Bookstore, Peterborough Pride and WorldPride Church Street stage for Nuit Rose.
Join Hamlet, Ophelia, Gertrude and Polonius in this gender-bending farce of never-ending happy endings!
