Hamlet: Prince of Pork
by Gene Kato
Based on some play by Shakespeare
Dan Langhoff and Paul A. Page in the 2015 late-night production of Hamlet: Prince of Pork
at Vintage Theatre in Aurora, CO.
This uproarious adaptation of the Shakespearean classic is set in the castle Shish-ka-bob in the land of Pork where all of the characters . . .are pigs. Every scene from the classic tale is represented as poor Hamlet tries desperately to avenge the death of his father (King Omelet). Turning the classic on it’s ear – this version features a collection of orthodox Jewish wolves, pigs a plenty, and a tap dancing pork chop – all culminating in a final confrontation featuring death, mayhem, and a sword fight with giant skewers.
