Theres something strange in the neighborhood of contemporary Denmark. Who are you going to call? That is the question. In Pan Pans purgatorial presentation of Shakespeares classic tragedy, you as the audience are faced with a choice: who is to be, or not to be, Hamlet? Actors compete to play the title role, but as we enter the graveyard world of this icon of individualism, can anyone escape playing the Dane? Arent we all the main part?

Highly innovative and visually breathtaking, this is an audacious and irreverent riff on Hamlet that does not so much update or deconstruct the play as it does explode it.

Winner of the 2010 Irish Times Theatre Awards for Best Production and Best Design. Critics Choice as Best Show at the 2010 Dublin Theatre Festival.

Magnificently stimulating and thought-provoking theatre in an equally devastating setting. Not to be missed. Emer OKelly, Sunday Independent
