Yorick by Mark Leiren-Young

To laugh or not to laugh? The question isn't whether Shakespeare was real, it's was Shakespeare funny... The ghost of Hamlet's famous Fool has risen to reveal he was actually Shakespeare's gag writer and - as he shares his story - he performs the funniest scenes in the Bard's repertoire. This is an actor's chance to play Falstaff, the Porter, Jaques, Kate, Petruchio, all The Mechanicals from Midsummer and more.
