In this reframed version of Shakespeare's play, young Hamlet is a prince from an unnamed African state who has the world at his feet, young, wealthy and living a hedonistic life studying abroad. Then word reaches him that his father is dead. Returning home, he finds his world is utterly changed, his certainities smashed, and his home a foreign land. Struggling to understand his place in a new world order, he faces a stark choice, submit, or rage against the injustice of his new reality.
