Synopsis

Shakespeare's Hamlet by Nicki Greenberg

The play's the thing ..Wherein I'll catch the conscience of the king!..Denmark is in turmoil. The palace is seething with treachery, suspicion and intrigue. On a mission to avenge his father's murder, Prince Hamlet tries to claw free of the moral decay all around him. But in the ever-deepening nest of plots, of plays within plays, nothing is what it seems. Doubt and betrayal torment the Prince until he is propelled into a spiral of unstoppable violence...In this sumptuous staging of Shakespeare's enigmatic play on the page, Nicki Greenberg has created an extraordinary visual feast that sweeps up all in its path as the drama intensifies both on stage and off...An astounding work - unique, gripping and, as ever, tragic.

About the Author

Nicki Greenberg has had a lifelong fascination with strange creatures, especially the ones with goggly eyes. Like the octopus, Nicki is adept at camouflage. She can often be found disguised as a lawyer, but on her days off she writes and illustrates comics. Favourite subjects include zombies, New York City, pirates, gentle monsters and, of course, squids. Researching cephalopods has not put Nicki off her favourite dish: crispy fried salt-and-pepper squid.
