Two Gents Productions presents
Kupenga Kwa Hamlet
Dates to be confirmed
Creator: Two Gents Productions
In the twilight of a pre-colonial Zimbabwe, a world of unyielding beliefs and ritual, where the afterlife and the present co-exist Hamlet, a tribal prince, returns home to find his father murdered, his mother incoherent and a new, dangerous chief in power. As the corpses mount, who buries who, and what danger is lurking in the wings of this small kingdom?
Two actors, two props and the convergence of two cultures are all it takes to create an urgent, poetic and spiritual re imagining of the rarely seen First Quarto of Shakespeare's classic as the award winning Two Gents Productions return.
"Two Gents Productions have created a masterful Hamlet in which its actors perform with passion, energy and confidence... a most engaging piece of theatre." The British Theatre Guide
"A rollicking, fast-paced bit of storytelling... has a surging, gung-ho vibrancy that effectively transforms it from tragedy to ripping yarn" Time Out
"They make us laugh without ridiculing the play or diminishing its themes of love and death... a unique take on a classic work of art" remotegoat.co.uk
